A mini-Tony Awards-style awards show for high school drama departments and their productions of musicals. Two students will be chosen for Best Actor and Best Actress with live judging that evening and sent to New York to work with Broadway professionals and to perform on a Broadway stage, competing for the national Jimmy Awards.

Twenty students, 10 males and 10 females, compete for the titles of Best Actor and Best Actress while performing group medleys written for them to learn and perform in the week prior, as well as solos and other medleys featuring the characters that got them nominated. These students are judged live at the event. Other performers compete for Best Supporting Actor and Actress awards while schools compete for four other awards. It's all a tremendous celebration of the great work done in high school drama departments across the State of New Mexico.
