Next Generation Varsity Quartet

This award (which replaced Illinois District Collegiate Quartet Champion award) is intended to encourage young men to try quartetting as early as possible. This is also a qualification contest for the college quartet that will represent the Illinois District at the International College Competition in July. Additional rules apply to the International Collegiate Preliminary Contest.

It will be presented after the Saturday night quartet finals.

(In the event that there are no collegiate quartets competing, the award will not be presented.)

The Youth In Harmony Chairman makes the presentation.

The Illinois District College Quartet Champion is that College Quartet which, through its competition, receives the highest total score of competing college quartets.

The Contest Administrator(CA) receives the scores for each competitor from the judging panel.  The CA enters the scores into the Society Scoring Program.  When all scores have been entered, the program sorts the scores and determines placement for each eligible competitor.  The OSS (Official Scoring Summary) is then printed.

Typically, four plaques are given, one to each member of the winning quartet. There is also a large trophy, used for display purposes only, that will have the quartet’s name and date engraved on it. This display trophy was contributed by Wound For Sound, District Medalist quartet from Bloomington.
