From these contestants, a member group is chosen to represent the best of the best. Although contestants strive to be selected for Tops In Blue during the competition, they also compete in one of five individual categories to be the best in the Air Force.
These include male and female vocalist, instrumentalist, and musical and non-musical variety categories. A contestant's age or rank is not a limiting factor. Talent category winners have ranged from lieutenant colonels and senior master sergeants with more than 20 years of service to second lieutenants and airmen basic with fewer than six months of service.
Most contestants, however, are junior officers and staff sergeants and below. All contestants must have their commanders' approval to allow them to travel with Tops In Blue.
These programs are funded in part by appropriated funds and supplemented with nonappropriated funds that are generated by Air Force people. The group last posted on its page July 5, answering a fan: We are waiting on word whether this program will continue in the future.
