The Determination Award

The Determination Award is given to a contestant to honor the memory of our brothers who have passed away. We wanted to honor them with a special award, and we thought determination epitomized each of their persona's. The Determination Award is given to the contestant that, in the judges opinion, is showed the most determination.
