Adjudicators evaluate how each participating high school musical meets or exceeds its potential, utilizing its available resources. Each musical is evaluated and scored against itself for consideration, rather than against all other school productions, charging schools to create the best possible work in their unique circumstance and environment. The Shuler Hensley Awards Category Criteria for Excellence provides suggestions and helpful ideas for what Shuler Hensley Awards adjudicators may consider excellent, which would be an eight (8) on the Shuler rating scale.

Adjudication Process

THE ADJUDICATION PROCESS...

3 Adjudicators and 1 Committee Member will attend each production. Adjudicators evaluate how each participating high school musical meets or exceeds its potential, utilizing its available resources. Each musical is evaluated and scored against itself for consideration, rather than against all other school productions, charging schools to create the best possible work in their unique circumstance and environment.

 Each school receives comments on their production within 30 days of the evaluated musical. Schools also receive their scores after the Awards Ceremony in April. Feedback is intended to serve as an educational tool for directors and students, not strictly a review or critique. It is up to the discretion of the director to share these reports with their students, creative staff or administration but often all of those involved in the production will view the adjudicator feedback.
