We were there and really thought Spanish Fork definitely deserved Grand Champion.

I'm new to this and I do have a technical question- should there be a penalty or something like that for a team that goes over the time limit? Just wondering.


Typically, yes, there is a penalty for going over the time limit, but each competition varies.

Points wise... Eisenhower was 4 points ahead after finals.



Actually Jorge, I think you got some wrong info. After finals, EEE was .4 behind. It was close, but they were not ahead points wise at the end of the competition.

For the past several years, FAME has gone to the majority rules judging format. Simply put, if the majority of judges has a group in 1st place, they will win regardless of scores. In this way, one judge can't have an unbalanced effect on the overall panel's decision. Lots of contests are going to this format. It's somewhat similar to the idea of converting scores to rankings and figuring it that way as many Iowa competitions are now doing. My understanding is that all but one judge had Spanish Fork in first. I could be inaccuarate about that, but I know for a fact that it was a majority (either 3 out of 5, or 4 out of 5).

A case in point as to why this system works played out at a contest I judged MANY years ago (probably 6 or 7). There were 5 judges, and 4 of us had the same group in 1st place by anywhere from 2 to 5 points, for a total spread of around a 15-point lead. The fifth judge had a different group in 1st place, THIRTY-FIVE points ahead. This actually dropped the group that truly deserved to win the championship down to 2nd, and only 1 point ahead of 3rd. Hope this explanation helps. God Bless, Damon Brown


Thanks for explaining... but I was simply stating the points score... not implying that Spanish Fork should not have won.

God Bless,

Adam Peters

Spanish fork's theme this year was originally 'visions', but as more planning happened, we decided that more than a theme, ambassadors were sending out a message to a better world. "change a heart, change the world" seemed to better interpret the meaning of the show, and so it sticked as the theme for the year.

The song is "Man In The Mirror," but not a traditional arrangement of it. I don't remember the exact quotes but they were about making change and also showed pictures of African children during the song. It ended with something like "24 children have lost their parents to AIDS during this song." I'm sure someone from Spanish Fork could provide more detail.


How morbidly interesting.

Spanish Fork's show is basically about the dream of a better world. We decided to do a new setting of Man In The Mirror, putting it in an Arican dance motiff. The screen's help do the job of providing the storyline while the song is unfolding, both through pictures and quotations. God Bless, Damon Brown


this seems like a really cool show... anybody know if it's up on youtube? ide really like to see it.

I'm just curious about a song that I hear is in Spanish Fork's show. You guys apparently use flat screen TVs that project quotes? Could you please explain the song and maybe post the quotes?
