One “Weekly Winner” in each age division of the drumset category is chosen during each week of the contest. These winners will be determined by an esteemed team of judges made up of members of the Sabian Educators Network (SEN). Weekly Winners will be announced weekly beginning March 16, 2020. Weekly Winners will receive an assortment of prizes and automatically become Finalists.

The Weekly contests are cumulative, meaning that the all current contest entries are eligible to be selected as a Weekly Winner, not just those entries registered during a specific week. For example, the Week Three winner will be selected from all video entries registered during weeks one, two and three.

Winners will be notified by email, announced on the HLAG Social pages and posted here on Mondays from March 16 through April 27, 2020.
