The next nomination period for Outstanding ACDA Student Chapter Award
will be announced in Fall 2018.
The winner of the Outstanding Student Chapter Award will be
publicly announced at the national conference in Kansas City, MO, February 27-March 2, 2019.
The Outstanding Student Chapter Award was established by the
American Choral Directors Association in 1978 as a means for recognizing an
ACDA Student Chapter which, through its activities, best supports the
advancement of choral music. The award consists of a plaque that becomes the
permanent property of the winning chapter and two monetary awards: $250 to the
student chapter and $200 to help defray expenses of an officer or designated
representative of the chapter to attend the national conference and receive the
award for the chapter.
The Outstanding Student Chapter Award will be determined by
the following criteria:
- Service to chapter members through projects that
directly benefit the student members in developing the insight and skills
necessary for a successful choral musician.
- Service to choral music through activities that
in some way advance the field of choral music either as a direct benefit to
choral musicians or to the public perception and understanding of choral music.
- Service to the institution that enhances and
strengthens choral music’s educational program on the chapter’s campus.
Anyone may nominate an ACDA Student Chapter for this
honor. Incomplete nominations will not
be considered. Please include the
- A description of chapter activities for the last
two years which relate to the criteria
- Other supporting materials such as programs,
newsletters, articles, etc.
