Adjudicators are a very important part of our team. The adjudicators find the talented high school students who compete to represent New Mexico in the national Jimmy Awards. They also determine scores for the awards for schools: Best Production, Best Direction and Best Ensemble.
Adjudicators also form the core of the program's educational mission. By giving feedback, the adjudicator supports each student's education in musical theater as well as the educational efforts of the teacher.
Each school's production — or each cast of each school's production — will be evaluated only once by a trio of adjudicators. Adjudication forms for both the individual nominees and for the production itself will be returned to the teachers for distribution, minus scores and adjudicators names.
