Participation Requirements

Teachers: Teachers must hold CMEA membership, both at the time of submitting nominations and the Festival, and agree to serve as their school’s official chaperone for the entire day of the Festival.  The Teacher (official chaperone) may attend the All-State Conference sessions during the Festival (if they have purchased a conference registration), however they must remain on premises, provide the Elementary Honors Chairperson with their cell phone or other immediate contact information, and be available in case of emergency. In addition, schools must use prudent judgement and provide adequate support to students who may require additional supervision.

Students: Students must be enrolled in either the 4th, 5th, or 6th grade at the participating school. Students are expected to be able to sing both soprano and alto parts. Please note: While the timing of this ensemble does not conflict with Elementary Honors Band or Orchestra, teachers are requested to work with their colleagues to bring different students to EHC.

Registration Procedure

Members must log in to this website to be able to access the EHC School Registration Form on this page.

To ensure that as many schools as possible are able to participate in the 2020 EHC, the registration procedure will include 2 steps this year.

Step 1: EHC School Registration

Interested schools complete online EHC School Registration form between September 15 and November 1, 2019.

Besides your school’s name and your contact information, you will also need to provide your administrators name and contact. Please obtain the official support of your administrator to participate, you will need to sign off on this when you register your school. Participation amounts are based per school, so only register your school once. Schools that have more than one member teacher will need to collaborate in order to complete Step 2. Consult with your school/district orchestra/choir/band teachers to be sure not to register the same student for multiple honors ensembles.

All registered schools be guaranteed participation in the ensemble.

Schools will be contacted about the maximum number of students they may bring by November 8, 2019. (If needed for planning purposes, teachers should estimate bringing 4 students; however, this is NOT a final number, and teachers should wait for the November 8th email to confirm how many students they will be able to bring.)

Step 2: Student Registration

Included in the email that indicate the maximum number of students a school may bring, will be further instructions on how to complete Step 2: the individual Student Registration portion and a link to the online form. This portion must be completed, and the required student health form and fees received in the CMEA office no later than December 15, 2019. Music will be mailed out after completion of all of Step 2 has been confirmed by the CMEA office.
