The Young Composers Project gives students of WSMTA members the opportunity to submit their original compositions for judging and comments by qualified adjudicators.
The project provides educational feedback, a goal-setting format, and a focus on music that students love – their own compositions. Adjudicators select a first, second and third place composition for each grade level giving written comments. Certificates are awarded to all participants, and a small monetary prize is awarded to each first place winner (see yearly Rules and Guidelines form for details.) First place winners are invited to perform their compositions at the WSMTA Conference each June.
