Registration Closes: 2/25/2021

Audition Date: 2/26/2021

Entry is open to students of NATS members in the Intermountain Region.  Although our region does not require placing at the Chapter level as a prerequisite for participation in the Intermountain Regional NSAs, teachers are strongly encouraged to vet their students before submitting them for this national competition.

The Intermountain Regional NSA is by YouTube videos only, submitted via AuditionWare; there is no live adjudication for the regional level.  Entries are adjudicated by teachers from the region; teachers will not adjudicate their own students but all teachers who enter students are expected to assist with the adjudications.  Adjudicators may advance 5 singers from each category (1-14) to the National Preliminary Round which also takes place via video submission.

FEES:  There are no teacher fees but each student entry pays a $25 fee.  The money will be divided among those winners who are chosen to advance to NSA Semifinal Rounds on July 8 - 10, 2021at the NATS Summer Workshop in North Carolina (site TBD) to assist with their costs.
