Adjudication Process

Each school that participates in the CAPA Marquee Awards will register to have their musical evaluated by a team of three adjudicators.

Evaluations will consist of providing educationally-focused feedback and scoring and will be completed through an online system. All adjudicators are required to attend a training session which will provide guidance on how to fairly evaluate each production on its own merits. New adjudicators must also successfully complete a training adjudication before they will serve as a production adjudicator.

Adjudicators will be paid an honorarium of $50 per show. The number of shows will be based on several factors including the number of participating high schools and the total number of adjudicators.
