Chapter of the Year

This award was established in 2006 to recognize those chapters that have made the most significant contributions to the music teaching profession through participation in local, state and national programs.  Any WSMTA Chapter may submit an application for the Chapter of the Year Award, whether applying for the first time, having previously applied, or having already received the award.

In 2020, the Board of Directors raised the award for the winning chapter to $500.   The deadline for applying is May 1, 2021.

Please click  Chapter of the Year  for the application, criteria, guidelines and more information.

The winner will be announced during the Banquet of the annual WSMTA Conference in June.
