    Jade Esposito
    Victoria Beebout
    Elisa Siegmund
    Kathryn McSwain

    There may be others who competed, but whose videos I have not found yet.



    Now the entries for the first through third challenges to this competition are on youtube.

    The judges are (judge profiles here):
    http://www.youtube.com/user/G2CYAS#g/c/D109BE5F9AC3B542

    Some of the judges were interviewed, and some appear not to have been, and yet appear commenting on the competitors' work. It's not clear to me whether the non-interviewed were celebrity bystanders or real judges. Plus I have only found the announcement of the winner of Challenge 1 so far. Different judges judged different challenges, as far as I can decode.

    Joe Inman-Judge
    Michael Weis-Competitor
    Stephanie Grosscup
    Lorna Brown-Choreographer
    Gary Beacom-Competitor and utterly unique skater
    Sara Kawahara-Choreographer
    Dan Joyce
    Doug Webster
    It appears that
    Kurt Browning
    Jeri Campbell
    Jamie Isley
    Leann Miller

    Here is a playlist that the person who put it up felt were the best programs of the competition:

    There may be additional postings...and I haven't watched most of the competition, but I thought some of you might be interested in what the future might bring in skating, when the works of these young people begins to be performed by elite level competitors

    There are 2 more Challenges. Audrey Weisger announces ithem:

    I really like Tommy Steenburg's number in the first challenge. There are some interesting new moves in it.
