Jamboree arena show wins Excellence in Live Design Award

Rappers Jay-Z and Eminem, the musical “Promises, Promises,” and the Boy Scouts of America.

An odd trio, sure, but they all have one thing in common: They’re among the winners of the fourth annual Excellence in Live Design Awards, handed out last week.

The rappers won for Best Concert, the musical snagged Best Theater Production, and the BSA won Best Corporate Event for its 100th Anniversary show at last summer’s national Scout jamboree.

The show, called “A Shining Light Across America,” was full of unforgettable moments for the 72,000 in attendance and hundreds of thousands watching at home.

Last month, I asked you to cast your vote for the winner, and I’d like to think that it was your votes that helped put the BSA’s big show over the top.

Major kudos to the staff and volunteers who worked the event and to CorporateMagic, the production company behind it all.

Speaking of, if you haven’t read this behind-the-scenes article about the technical wizardry it took to put on the show, it’s worth your time.

(Thanks to Patrick Adams for the tip.)

  1. Did you forget about the tens of thousands more that watched the Shining Light Across America via live AT&T telecast into various arenas and stadiums around the country? We had nearly 5,000 attend at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Denver.
