People really need to stop screaming as soon as an award is being announced. You can't hear some of the awards because of this. Things get very confusing, trophies handed to the wrong people. From what I could make out, these are the caption awards.

I could not hear who made Best Male and Female Soloist so I will look into it.
I mean, ALL show choir is a big deal. But in all seriousness, I'd say Missouri is pretty underrepresented on here in comparison to other show choir states. We'd love to have more Missouri folks around, but in the meantime I suppose it'll be Wisco folks filling that void.
From a Wisco kid, it’s really just about gaining more of an overall awareness for the community. I may see the same 5-7 groups throughout the season but I can make connections to countless more... and I’m a “doer” kind of person, so I try to make things happen.
I try to spread the word about this website, but I'm still the only super active person from my school unfortunately. Even my director rarely uses this. Some people from my groups probably don't even know that this website exists. When I talk to my friends about it, they just take it that I'm too obsessive about show choir.
