2012 WGI Winners

This year’s WGI champions included a few newcomers and many old favorites, fitting for the celebration of the organization’s 35th anniversary. Some groups won by very slim margins while others raced far ahead of the pack. New aspects of WGI this year included lighting and multimedia videos for the percussion groups though few of the winners delved into that arena.
