The Shammy Awards

The Shammy Video Awards take place annually and honors our students top performances of the year!  Out of the 100's of student performances posted on our YouTube channel a year, about 40 of them make it to the final round. 

As of 2021, we have changed its format to promote equity, respect and fairness to all students. We will no longer divide awards into traditional male and female categories. Rather students will be recognized by age and/or skill level.

Public votes and video views help towards a higher score, but the winners are primarily selected by a panel of judges that are NOT affiliated with ShamRock. The winners are then awarded with trophies at our Shammy Ceremony!

Congratulations to all who have earned a Shammy and to all that performed throughout the years!
