You have traveled far, you

Various winners may be chosen in each of the repertoire category and in each age group.

Special awards, such as cash prizes, scholarships or medals, may be bestowed without prior announcement, based on the recommendation and at the sole discretion of the adjudicating panel at the time of adjudication. The Winner shall be responsible for any applicable federal, provincial, state and local taxes and customs fees for prizes or awards.
