Team Spirit/Sportsmanship Award

A Team Spirit Award will be given to the Team exhibiting the most Team Spirit/Sportsmanship in the Parade and throughout the Youth World Show.
When the show is over and the stress is relieved, Team Tournament participants get to sport their team colors and parade down the center of the main area. Team spirit, along with consideration of the team’s sportsmanship is taken into consideration for the Team Spirit Award. It is given to the team that is enthusiastic and spirited while remaining kind, helpful, and supportive to show competitors, spectators, and staff.
