2020 Judge Panel

Our educational mission is to provide your program a nationally renowned panel of evaluators who will offer clear, in-depth, and useful commentary. Throughout the evaluator assignment process, we consider each individual’s background as an educator, creative mind, as well as their ability to provide constructive criticism, delivered in a positive manner to high school students. These individuals are selected on their ability to comment “beyond the score sheet” and deliver educational insight to your staff and students that will assist in the growth, improvement, and motivational aspects of your marching band program. We are honored as well as excited to extend you this invitation for participation in the 18th annual “Tournament of Champions.” We promise to do everything in our power to offer your students, staff, and parents, a first-rate experience coupled with unparalleled educational feedback.
