2017 – Gold, Silver, Bronze… with marks!
For our 2017 Festival, all participants will still be competing for Gold, Silver or Bronze awards, but they will also receive their corresponding mark.
Gold Standard (85-100) Exceptional, Highly skilled, Outstanding Performance
Silver Standard (80-84) Skilled, Excellent Performance
Bronze Standard (75-79) Agreeable Performance
Participant (Below 75)
No longer will two superb performances have one participant elated because they received first, leaving the other to feel they have somehow failed with a mark behind. In our new approach to our festival, both outstanding performances leave with a gold certificate.
Additionally, if there is just one performer in the class, that does not guarantee a gold as was so often the case. Now each student will receive a certificate based upon the quality of their performance.
Awards handed out at our Festival of Stars Awards Ceremony will remain the same. Adjudicators will select the participants they feel are most worthy of recognition.
Our gold standard meets the Provincial competition mark requirement. We look forward to sponsoring our recommendations!
We hope all our performers have an enjoyable and educational experience!
2016 – A Milestone Year!
In 2016, our festival moved away from First, Second, Third in all our classes. We made the change to Gold, Silver, Bronze in order to allow each student to receive a certificate based on their individual performance.
For the first time in our Kiwanis Festival’s 84 year history, all class syllabus selections, registrations, payments and scheduling were done entirely online.
Gone are the piles of paper registrations, mystery cheques, schedule shuffling, endless cross checking and tedious typing. While it has been a learning curve for all involved, these much needed improvements have made our festival possible.
We appreciate our patrons taking this journey with us to modernize our festival together. To say we couldn’t do it without you, is an understatement!
