Winners will perform at RedHawks games throughout the season, with the grand prize winner performing at the 2014 home opener on Friday, April 11 against the New Orleans Zephyrs. 

The judging panel will consist of editors and columnists from The Oklahoman, city officials, community leaders, and entertainment professionals. Winners will be chosen based on voice quality, creative style, and stage presence.
