Guide for a Successful Achievement Audition

The online District Entry Form has changed slightly this year. Click on the link below to receive step-by step instructions on how to fill out the form. Teachers should only submit one form with all the required information.

If a student arrives at District or State with a composition that does not meet the OMTA repertoire guidelines or is different from what was registered, the student will play for critique only. Critique only does not qualify for State nor any awards.

All teachers entering students in District will be expected to work a minimum of 5 hours or pay a $25 fee with their entry form. No exemptions.

The entry fee for State will be $25. The entry fee for District remains at $20.

All teachers entering students in State will pay a $25 volunteer fee with their District entry form. A volunteer may sign up for more than one four-hour shift. The fee is refundable for teachers who work at least one four-hour volunteer shift. No exemptions.


Students must have a I- or higher on every required critique to receive the Burg Award at State. This will begin with ninth graders this audition year.
