"The A Cappella Community Awards recognize the best of the best in a
cappella music, dishing out kudos in several categories. 
Professional group genres include pop/rock, barbershop, doo-wop,
folk/world, religious, classical, jazz and comedy.  Individual
awards are also given for best male/female vocalist, vocal
percussionist, songwriter and arranger.  This year we have added
scholastic awards as well:  male/female/mixed collegiate or high
school group.  And for the first time we've got an award for your
favorite professional and scholastic albums of 2005!

The ACAs are voted on by the public.  That means the whole public
-- you, your mom, your best friend, etc.  Voting is open to anyone
astute enough to know about it (and now you know about it, so VOTE!).

Votes can be cast by filling out the online form (click here to reach it:  http://www.casa.org/index.php?option=com_aca&Itemid=144). 
Each individual can only vote once, but you're more than welcome to get
as many people as you can to vote.  It's our hope that these
awards will be a truly accurate representation of what the greater a
cappella community is thinking.  You must sign in to vote, so go
find your CASA login info or sign up for a free membership to CASA

Voting to determine the favorites of 2005 is open from December 3, 2005
until January 8th, 2006, and the winners will be announced on January
15, 2006.  Don't pass up an opportunity to make an impact -- go
vote now!
