WGI Sport of the Arts, the world’s leader in producing indoor marching arts events, today announced a multi-phase partnership with E-Adjudicate that will deliver significant benefits to instructors and judges on a local, national, and international level. The partnership will allow WGI to launch various online solutions in design consultation and judge commentary as well as a program to certify judges on a local level all the way through becoming a WGI Certified Judge. "E-Adjudicate is proud to partner with WGI. Through this partnership, we are excited to share in the vision and innovation of the new programs being offered in a virtual environment," said Peggy Bilbruck, owner of E-Adjudicate. "This will open doors for instructors and judges to gain ongoing information, training and education." WGI One on One combines solutions for the beginning to intermediate instructor by giving access to today's top designers and technicians. By sharing soundtracks, costume and set designs, and overall program concepts in a virtual environment, users will benefit from online consultations in the preliminary stages of designing their program or by observing rehearsal footage for tips on technique. During the season, instructors may continue consulting with peers or share video of their program with current WGI judges. WGI Certify is a totally re-imagined way of training judges at all levels. Using a combination of online tutorials and personalized mentoring, candidates will navigate a comprehensive training series in caption philosophy, numbers management and recording performance commentary. Graduates will be then certified at a Circuit Partner level with those continuing the process named a WGI-Certified Judge. "Our unique partnership addresses the ever-growing need for access to assistance for instructors as well as training the next generation of judges. We anticipate both to benefit from our aligned strategies to solve important needs for the indoor marching arts," said Ron Nankervis, Executive Director. "Users will find these initiatives powered by E-Adjudicate to be a complete solution for their needs." WGI One on One will be available later this year with WGI Certify scheduled to debut in October.
