Welcome to the HWAA.
Winter Judging Clinic for 2014 Season
Heartland Winter Arts Association is dedicated to the ongoing development of our units. Our local judges are key players in this process through the educational critique offered over the course of the competitive season.
We're always looking for new candidates to train for our judging panel! In the past, our judges have come from some of the following backgrounds:
- Individuals that have strong understanding of color guard, percussion, theater arts, dance, and music.
- Experienced instructors that have a heightened awareness of the philosophy and the scoring system.
- Individuals who have judged in the other genres of the performing arts.
This is just a partial list! The most important quality necessary to be a local judge is a desire to give your time and energy to developing your skills and observations, analysis, comparison, and commentary in support of the performing units.
The Winter Judging Clinic for the 2014 season will be held on Saturday, December 14th, 2013 from 10:00am to 3:00pm.
The first step to joining our judging panel is to contact the HWAA Judging Coordinator, Anthony Riederer, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
