- TMEA All-State Camp Scholarships -

Students interested in the TMEA All-State Choir audition process for the 2019-2020 school year should highly consider participating in a summer All-State Choir Camp. Hosted by university choral departments around the state, these choir camps are the best way to get a head start on all of the audition music with quality instructors. Most of our students choose at least one camp to participate in each year, and to help support these opportunities, our Booster club offers $100 scholarships to interested students. As many of the registrations for these camps sell out within a few days, you will need to complete the scholarship application by Monday, February 25 to prepare for the March 1st registration openings!
