We thank Elizabeth Loucks Samson for sponsoring the Jury Chairman.
The screening jury was charged with the daunting task of whittling down over 150 candidates (each having submitted three videos) to just 24 live round competitors. Any juror having a familial relationship or a current or former teaching/professional relationship with an applicant was requested to declare the relationship and abstained from voting on that particular applicant’s performances.
