Overall Awards

Overall High Point Awards are given out for each age division, experience level, and group size. The number of placements awarded is dependent on the number of participants within each age division, experience level, and group size. For solos, this number is based on the amount of individual participants. For Duo/Trios, Small Groups, Large Groups, and Lines, this number is based on the total number of routines within the age division, experience level, and group size. Overall Regional Entry Certificates are given to the routine that receives the highest score in their age division, experience level, and group size. If there are less than four participants, a Regional Entry Certificate will not be awarded (the top scoring contestant will still receive their placement and medal).
