Voting Process

The process begins with high school band directors, principals, and dance in- tructors within the state of Georgia submitting entries, which are then screened for eligibility and category placement. Some category submissions, such as; Arranger Of The Year can be submitted by anyone. (See Categories Page for more info.)

This process is facilitated by a specially formed committee within the Academy. The Academy's voting members then participate in (1) the nominating process that determines the five finalists in each category; and (2) the final voting process which determines the BRONAA winners.

 

Submission

High School band directors, principals, and dance instructors within the state of Georgia, enter submissions that were performed during the eligibility year, which they consider worthy of recognition in the BRONAA Awards process.

 

Screening

Reviewing sessions by committee are held to ensure that submissions meet specific qualifications and have been placed in appropriate categories before submitting to the Academy. The purpose of screenings is not to make artistic or technical judgments about the performances, but rather to make sure that each entry is eligible and placed in its proper category.

 

Nominating

First-round ballots are sent to the Academy Of Fine Arts. To help ensure the quality of the voting, members are directed to vote only in their areas of expertise. This round determines the five finalists for each category based on a scoring matrix. Ballots are tabulated by the independent accounting firm of Max Benkel Tax & Accounting Council.

 

Final Voting

Final-round ballots are sent to the Academy Of Fine Arts. This final round determines the BRONAA winners for each category based on a scoring matrix. Ballots are tabulated by the independent accounting firm of Max Benkel Tax & Accounting Council.

 

Results

Results of Academy’s voting are not known until the BRONAA Awards presentation ceremony when names of the winners are delivered by Max Benkel Tax & Accounting Council. BRONAA Award winners are revealed during the BRONAA Awards ceremony.
