I was wondering if we bring music for beginner freestyle? And if theres a prize?

yes and yes. Music can be provided if necessary. 1:30 minutes, make sure it is clean.

is there any videos from last years winners from that division. I have been yoyoing for 5 months and i got 19th out of 24 in the normal contest at ohio states so idk if i should do beginner or novice

We didn’t have a beginner division last year. Find me at the contest and ask.
