The purpose of having costuming is to ensure a level of consistency and equity across the competition. We suggest commencing to look at costuming requirements from Week 3 onward as the selection process of your team is being completed. Schools participating for the first time will need to purchase costumes. If cost is an issue for costuming, borrowing costumes from a school that is not participating this year is possible, just let us know and we can ask for you. To ensure that our program is equitable adherence to the costuming requirements must be observed. To comply with the ethos of equity within the program, costumes should be simple, not extravagant, and yet effective.

  • Hair should be neatly styled only. Glitter hairspray and gel are permitted.
  • Simple ribbons or bows in the hair are permitted.
