This email is for schools participating in the NCCSA Elementary Fine Arts Competitions. Please forward to the appropriate individual(s).
We are looking forward to your school’s participation in the 2017 NCCSA Elementary Fine Arts Competition. For your convenience, the Elementary Fine Arts Competition Registration Form will be submitted online this year. The online form and fees must be submitted to the NCCSA State Office by March 22.
The per-entry (per-person) fee is $7.50, with a maximum of $75.00 per group of 10 or more. You may pay your competition fees by check or debit/credit card. Please note that you must use a debit/credit card that has a first and last name for PayPal to accept the payment. (Business debit/credit cards are generally not accepted.) NCCSA Elementary Fine Arts Competition fees are non-refundable.
After submitting the registration form, if you do not receive a confirmation email within two hours, your form was likely not submitted. Please contact the NCCSA State Office for assistance as soon as possible. If you have an addition or change to your registration, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Do not submit a second registration form.
Late Entries will be accepted only under the following conditions:
- Late entries or changes to your registration form will be allowed only if they cause no additional conflicts.
- All late-entry requests or changes must be approved by the NCCSA State Office at email@example.com.
- The late registration form processing fee is $25.00, and the late-entry fee (per person) is double the original fee.
- No late entries or changes will be accepted after Monday, March 27.
Please be sure that you have reviewed the 2017 NCCSA Elementary Fine Arts Competition Information Letter (that includes the Points of Emphasis document) that was emailed to schools on February 15 and is still available HERE.
Each school must have a copy of the NCCSA Elementary Fine Arts Manual – 2016 Edition before competing. Also, if you use adjudication forms from older manuals, the entry will be disqualified (comments only). For categories that require adjudication forms, the top portion of those forms must be typed.

The 2017 NCCSA Educators’ Convention will be held in Myrtle Beach on September 27-29, 2017.
The NCCSA is officially requesting workshop submissions for the 2017 NCCSA Educators’ Convention. Even though we are typically able to use only a portion of the submitted workshops, having a large sample to choose from enables us to put together a professional, diverse workshop team to cover a wide array of workshop topics. The speakers who are selected will be notified no later than July 1, 2017.
If you are interested in submitting a workshop for the convention this fall, please submit the workshop proposal form no later than March 25. We request that workshops presented in the last five years not be repeated.
The 2017 Convention Workshop Proposal Form is located here: http://www.nccsa.org/forms/convention/convention-workshop-proposal-form/.
