Vocal Music Events

General Info

There will be some combined and separate Junior and Senior High divisions in this event. Junior and Senior High ages can be mixed, but will always be considered a Senior High group. Any Junior High teen who participates in a Senior High group event cannot participate in the same Junior High event.

Please Note: In all solo, duet, trio, and quartet categories, no teen may win more than one award per category. For example, the same teen cannot win 1st and 2nd place in mixed duets. The intent of this rule is to let more teens have a chance to win. Thank you for your cooperation.

Special Note to Pastor/Youth Pastor

No musical selection may be entered into competition in the singing, instrumental, or song leading categories without an authorized form signed by the Pastor/Youth Pastor for the teens home church. We are striving to keep the music in the teen talent contest conservative and Christ honoring. A copy of this form is available to download here.
