Awards for the parade, held April 16-18 and 23-25, were decided by three judging teams: 18 community members made up the People’s Choice team; 10 TABA builder members made up the team for the Builder’s Choice; and 16 students from the Temple High School Construction Trades Program made up the judging team for the Student Voice Awards.
