In order to compete at a WGI event, the following must be satisfied:
All performers of a competing group in any scholastic class must be approved for participation by the principal of the sponsoring school. Each scholastic group shall submit to the WGI office the provided Scholastic Eligibility Certification Form signed by the authorizing school principal or administrator listing all approved participants of that school’s group. Scholastic Letters must be received by the entry deadline date of your first performance. Groups failing to do so WILL NOT be permitted to compete.
All performers attend the same school. Performers may also attend a Middle School that feeds into the high school.
To access the form, log into the Director’s Only website and click More information under “Scholastic Letter”.
The purpose of this exception is to encourage smaller districts to combine students to create a program, not for larger districts to create multiple programs.
Scholastic ensembles may combine students from multiple high schools within their district provided the group competes under the name of a single school or the school district name. Groups may not combine names or use any other fictional name. Combined schools ensembles may only use students that are in their district and/or homeschooled students that would be zoned for those schools.
The WGI provided Scholastic Eligibility Certification form must be signed by each principal of the schools involved and filed with the WGI office.
The WGI provided letter signed by the District Superintendent on district letterhead that allows combining students from multiple high schools within the district/zone must also be filed with the WGI office.
Scholastic Letters must be received by the entry deadline date of your first performance. Groups failing to do so WILL NOT be permitted to compete.
