If you believe you meet the following criteria, please complete this “preliminary” application and submit it to Mrs. Da Silva in room 303. If you “preliminary” application is approved, you will be required to complete the “official” district application. All “official applications will be forwarded to the District committee for consideration and selection will ultimately be based on first come first serve basis and then by final percentage and experience in the area.

You must demonstrate excellence in one of the following elective areas:

            Fine Arts (Visual, Dance, Drama, Music)
