Are you a faculty advisor, a student president, or do you otherwise know about an ACDA student chapter doing excellent work? Please consider nominating it for ACDA’s Outstanding Student Chapter Award.
Previous award winners include the student chapters at Ithaca College, the Northern Arizona University, and the University of Southern California.
This award was created in 1978 as a means for recognizing an ACDA student chapter which, through its activities, best supports the advancement of choral music. The award consists of a plaque that becomes the permanent property of the winning chapter and two awards: $250 to the student chapter and a complimentary national conference registration for an officer or designated representative of the chapter to attend the national conference and receive the award for the chapter.
Anyone may nominate an ACDA student chapter for this honor. The selection will be made by a committee consisting of the national R&R Collegiate Choirs Coordinator, College and University Choirs Chair, and the Student Activities Chairs using the following criteria (not necessarily in order of importance):
- Level of impact on the professional development of its chapter members.
- Level of impact on the local/state/regional choral community in which the chapter resides.
- Innovative and engaging offerings presented by the chapter.
