About The gro Am
This is the first year of a national series for the girls am skate. There were a lot of unknowns going into this. Now that we are almost done, here is the rest of the information that we feel will provide the best showing for the talented girls around the country.
gro Am Qualifiers
There have been qualifiers along the gro Experience Tour and will be one more qualifier in California on July 16th, before the finals of the gro Am Road Series on that date. All winners of previous stops that travel out to California will go straight to the finals against the qualifier girls from the California qualifier. The top three girls will receive prizes and move on to the gro Am Video Finals.
gro Am Video Qualifiers
Due to rain in New York and the amount of girls unable to make it to a qualifier, gro is holding a second chance gro Am Video Contest to allow even more girls to get involved. Each girl that did not place top three in the finals, or could not make it to a qualifier at all will have a second chance to get into the finals that will showcase girls to Maloof Money Cup, Super Girl and the industry overall.
Each entering girl must make two videos. 1) One 60 second edited video that shows your skill. This is a street focused contest. Bowl or vert footage is great, but that is not what this contest is looking for. 2) One 60 second video that is unedited. This video is going to show you doing a 60 second run. This is to show your consistency in an event.
The two videos can be uploaded on YouTube or Vimeo and the links plus your name, age, contact info and hometown to email@example.com before 12:00am PST on August 15th.
All the video entries will be reviewed and judged. Then the top seven video entries will go against the videos from the three gro Am Road Qualifiers and be posted online for a judging by special guests and online voting. These final 10 skaters will have videos showcased and the top girl will be considered for Maloof Money Cup this fall in Orange County. Flight and hotel will be provided for the winner to attend their first pro contest.
