The scholastic competition format will be an open 12-minute set, similar to ICCA/ICHSA format;

At the end of the show, we will award the top three groups as well as any significant individual and group moments.

All groups selected to compete will receive:

One free studio recording of a competition song of their choice.
One open masterclass with one of our esteemed a cappella clinicians,
many of whom have traveled across the country to share their expertise with you.

The winning group will receive:

Free studio recordings of your entire competition set.
An open masterclass with our professional headliner group.
The opportunity to open for the Saturday night professional showcase concert.
