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 2020 NCCSA Elementary Fine Arts Competition on April 23–24 (April 24 for the western region). In order to participate in the competition, each school must submit the online registration form and fees to the NCCSA State Office by Tuesday, March 10. Please note that this form will require the name of each solo/small group participant and will take several minutes to complete.
If you have an addition or change to your registration, please email@example.com. Do not submit a second registration form.
The per-entry (per-person) fee is $7.50. Groups of 10 or more have a maximum fee of $75.00. 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.
Late Entry Requests: Adding late entries typically causes scheduling conflicts. Late entries will be allowed only if there are no additional conflicts. All late-entry requests must be approved by the NCCSA State Office by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If the registration form is submitted by the March 10 deadline, any additional entry requests (submitted no later than March 15) that fall into the criteria set by the NCCSA State Office will be double the original fee. This fee is assessed for each late entry submitted.
- If the registration form is submitted after the March 10 deadline (but no later than March 15), your school will be subject to at least a $25.00 late fee in addition to the double per-entry fee mentioned above.
- No late registration forms or additional competition entries will be accepted after March 15.
Please be sure that you have reviewed the 2020 NCCSA Elementary Fine Arts Competition Information Letter (that includes the Points of Emphasis document) that was emailed to schools on February 13 and is still availableHERE.
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 adjudication forms are located HERE.
