At each of our monthly meetings, DSA members have the opportunity to participate in our song critiques. Members can submit a song to be judged by members and guests and our panel of judges provide comments and critiques. The song with the highest score becomes our winning song for that month, and at the end of the year, a Song of the Year is awarded by an independent judge from the music industry, who reviews all the winning songs from the year. The songwriter with the most winning songs of the month is awarded the Songwriter of the Year.
