We wish to thank you for your interest in our scholarship competition. One high school finalist will be awarded a $1,700.00 scholarship, and another high school student will receive a $1,000 scholarship. One 8th grade finalist will be awarded a $1,370.00 scholarship, and another 8th grade student will receive a $1,100 scholarship. The scholarship money will be paid to each student’s private teacher for future study on a band instrument or the band camp of the student’s choosing.
We have a two-step process. Applicants will provide an unaccompanied audio only recordings of their solos for the first round of the competition. Judges will only consider the quality of the recorded performance but not the quality of the media used. These auditions will be blind. No information will be revealed to the judges except for the applicant’s instrument.
Based upon the first-round recordings, the scholarship committee will select contestants to compete in the second round. Due to the unpredictable nature of state COVID-19 mitigation recommendations, we will be asking for video submissions for the final round audition this year. We will notify applicants by March 6 of the results of the first round. Applicants who were selected to move on to the final round will be given further instructions which will include 1-2 weeks to submit an unaccompanied video performance.
Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to hearing from you!
