What contests will be held at the

Spring Convention?​

After two Town Halls, numerous phone calls and emails, and countless face-to-face conversations with JAD members across the district, the JAD Board has deliberated and decided on a new contest format for the near term. Before completely upending a multi-decade contest tradition, the JAD Board proposed a 3-year test period for a new contest format.  This format will be reevaluated again for 2025.  At that time, after reviewing feedback, attendance, and changes in membership numbers, if we feel a modification is necessary, the board reserves the right to repeal this policy or modify it further.

 

This contest format encompasses four independent contests: Men's Chorus, Men's Small Chorus, Women's Chorus, and Open Class Chorus.  Each category will have a winner, and the highest overall score will be named JAD Chorus Grand Champion, following the same format used since 2022. 

 

Competing groups may sign-up for whichever contest they choose during registration via Member Center.  Individuals are not required to share their gender; the group simply chooses which contest they want to enter using their internal definitions for eligibility per the ​contest descriptions.
