Over the months each school participating hosts auditions and/or competitions within their own school. These acts are related to the theme of Dignity and incorporate the arts. The acts are encouraged to combine multiple forms of art to create the most dynamic illustration of Dignity Awareness. The final act chosen at each school will move on to the final competition located at The Center for the Arts at the University at Buffalo. Each school will perform an act that will display an incredible illustration of awareness, collaboration, and creativity to spread Dignity Awareness. Each act is always a winner by simply participating in this event!
When it's time to purchase your tickets please do so through The University at Buffalo Center for the Arts Ticket Booth or buy tickets online (when available)! Prices may vary.
Cameras are allowed at the event. Refreshments, promotional materials, and donations will be available for purchase.
JUDGES AND SCORING
The acts will be scored by a panel of exclusive judges.
Judges will be announced through our social media as the program competition date approaches! So be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook!
A scorecard and rubric will be used by the judges to score the final competition. The criteria is as follows:
All categories have score range of either 0-5 or 0-10 that will be specified; the higher the number the better the act in such category. Some categories are weighted higher than others due to the importance of the category. All points will total at the end. The act with the highest total wins. Maximum points an act can receive are 50.
The BAND Against Bullying team would like to stress the importance of creating awareness for promoting ‘All Needs for Dignity.’ It is not about winning or losing. Treat others the way you would like to be treated – harmoniously, with dignity, kindness, free of any discrimination, intimidation, harassment, taunting, and/or bullying.
With that being said, it is still fun to have a winner! Students that participate in that act will win a first place trophy.
