From footwear to facial expressions, Spring Sing shows contain many moving parts. In order to effectively award points, Spring Sing judges evaluate each show’s strength in three categories: visuals, music and staging. Within each category, shows are awarded up to 100 points for specific elements, such as the appropriateness of the costume color selections and the variety of formations created. Shows can also receive 10 to 30 additional points for overall entertainment value. After the weekend performances, points are totaled and added to existing points shows received throughout the semester for meeting production deadlines. The winning show is announced Saturday evening.
