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.

Please note: “Play” will no longer be an event for the TSGC.
Events in red will continue indefinitely as virtually submitted events.
**Events that have a strike through, apply to 2022 Virtual Contest only. Events that shifted tiers due to virtual competition are in blue.  (See downloadable version above for all tiers combined.)
