sweepstakes_points_tsgc

Sweepstakes are awarded to schools receiving the highest number of points.  Points are earned for each event in which a student places 1st – 10th.  So, it is a team effort to win sweepstakes!

Events have been put into 5 tiers and each place receives a different point value.  Many individual events receive fewer points than group events requiring more “rehearsals”, coordination, difficulty, etc.

Events with an * compete at the regional level only, NOT at State.

Events in blue, have moved into a different tier for 2021 virtual contest only.  They will return to their original tier when contest is once again in person.
Events in red, are eligible events to compete in for the 2021 virtual German contest.
