Through auditions during the two-week school in Michigan, Megan Boericke was named the winner for Level C2.
Hannah Monroe was a first runner-up for Level D, the most advanced classification, and Lauren Monroe was first runner-up for Level C3. Darby Davis was the second runner-up for Level C1.
Receiving honorable mentions were Anna Hood for Level C3 and Stephanie Ferguson and Charlotte Hood for Level C2.
