Regional winners win airfare plus 2 nights accommodation in the San Francisco Bay Area to compete in the National Finals. There is also 1,000 free CDs duplication from our sponsor Discmakers for the National Champs.
Over the years winning our events has grown an impressive track record of being beneficial for our champions in a variety of different ways. Along with exposure that winning the event brings, groups may also make use of our extensive a cappella networking and resources that we have developed over the decades in conjunction with Singers.com.
