Achievement Awards Auditions

The Achievement Awards Auditions were initiated over 30 years ago by our association for the purpose of providing students of all performance levels with 1) a confidence-building preparation and performance opportunity, 2) evaluation by a qualified adjudicator, and 3) the privilege of performing in an Honors Recital upon receiving a Superior Plus rating from the adjudicator.

Creating Your Student Numbers:

Each teacher has or will be assigned an identifying code, which is a letter of the alphabet. To create student numbers, list your assigned alphabetical letter followed by numbers assigned to students ordered numerically by last name. Example: If the teacher's code = BB then students are numbered on the Application, Rating Sheet, and Roster sequentially as BB-1, BB-2, BB-3, etc. Enter your student numbers where indicated on the Application and Rating Sheets.
