ADJUDICATION
The HMI judges are well-established experts in the music education, marching and pageantry field with their educational philosophy and background taken into consideration as much as their career accomplishments. Bands receive recorded evaluation and score sheets from each judge. The emphasis is on the input the judge offers into the band’s program via the recorded evaluation. The HMI adjudication system is based on TBA Marching band Evaluation System. When using the four (4) person adjudication panel, the Music Performance Ensemble and Music Effect scores are multiplied by 1.5 to equal a possible three hundred points each with the Visual Performance and Visual Effect captions receiving a possible two hundred points each. The final score is achieved by multiplying the total points earned by .10.
