SCORING SYSTEM

MARKING SYSTEM

SHOCK prides itself on a fair and unbiased marking system.

The 5 judges will score each entry out of 100. The highest and lowest scores will be thrown out. The 3 remaining scores will be summed and averaged to produce the final score out of 100.

The judges will score each entry based on the following criteria:

  • 50% performance quality
  • 50% technical execution

In the event of a tie, the judges scores will be summed and averaged to produce a final score out of 100. This applies to ties within a category and overall standings.

CATEGORY AWARDS

1st, 2nd, and 3rd placements will be awarded in categories containing 2 or more entries.

In the event of a single entry in a category, the entry will be announced and recognized with an Emerald, Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze award.

In the event of more than 3 entries in a category, entries that do not place 1st, 2nd or 3rd in the category will be announced and recognized with an Emerald, Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze award.

SPECIAL AWARDS

5 Special Awards and 1 “Choreography of the Session Award” will be presented at each awards session.
