As the competition portion of the jam session came to an end, the judges had a tough decision separating first and second place, but a decision was made and Augusto Castillo came out on top, taking first place. Augusto won a voucher for a free pair of Rollerblade brand skates along with prize money. Joey Lunger and Trevor Johnson followed Augusto taking 2nd and 3rd place with Rollerblade soft goods, frames, and prize money.
