Greetings, 

       Region entries are done online through the TMEA website.  Please do not wait until the last minute to complete your entries.
Technology has a way of breaking down without notice, and this will give you time to check your entries with the students.


 ===================  ONLINE ENTRY IS CLOSED   ==================


**   You must be a member of both ATSSB and TMEA to enter your students for region auditions.  Copies of both cards must be attached to the "ATSSB Entry Cover Sheet".  

**  Do not fill out the “Declaration of Intent Form” unless you have a 1A/2A/3A student auditioning for the ATSSB 4A, TMEA 5A, and TMEA 6A Band OR have a 4A student auditioning for the TMEA 5A and 6A Band.  It is assumed that all of the 1A/2A/3A students are following the ATSSB 23A track AND all 4A students are following the ATSSB 4A track.  If you have a student going to a higher classification ATSSB 4A route or the TMEA route, fill out the “Declaration of Intent Form” and send it with your entries for ATSSB.

**  If you have students auditioning in both wind/percussion AND choir auditions, you must fill out the “Dual Certification” form and send it with your entries to me.  If you do not have a student going both choir and instrumental routes, don’t bother with it.

**  You will receive an Entry Confirmation Email (PDF) on Monday, November 24th showing the entries you submitted.  Check it for errors.  If you have any errors, go online and correct them BEFORE November 29th. After November 29, all corrections must be done at the audition site and directors must pay an additional entry fee ($10) per correction.

**  When you have completed your online entries, please fill out, print, and mail the following items to me postmarked by           November 22nd:
