Spring Song Contest 2016 Winners

The winners in the Spring Song Contest 2016 were announced in an Awards Show held at The Mockingbird Cafe this past Sunday with ASG President, Rick Busby hosting the event. Thank you to everyone who came out for the show, which featured performances from many of the 1st Place Winners. Many thanks also to everyone who entered the contest. There were a lot of really great songs submitted and the entire event including the awards show was a success.

There were really no losers. Every song entered was remarkable in its own right and the various judges had a real challenge in many categories in determining the winners and runners up. But in the end, someone has to win. Congratulations to all of the winners in each category.
