State Champ Cheer Competition
Place: Washington High School
Address: 2217 W Glendale Ave., Phoenix AZ 85017
Note: Each class/team will perform the same cheer and dance routine that they performed at the Regional Showcase. Students will be judged on the same categories - personality (smiles), curriculum requirements, spirit and technique.
