MTNA Performance Competitions

MTNA Performance Competitions are national in scope. The competitions begin in autumn at the State level (quarterfinal) and progress to the five-state East Central Division (semifinal) in January. Winners of the East Central Division compete at the National Finals, held concurrently with the National Conference in late March. There are no district competitions for the MTNA Performance Competitions.

These competitions are completely separate from the Hoosier Auditions. Non-member teachers may enter students in competitions.

All applications for MTNA competitions (performance and composition) must be submitted ONLINE at Applications will not be accepted by US mail or fax.
