Regional Contest at UCA location

Contest canceled

The ACTM regional contest at UCA this Saturday is canceled. Ultimately, our students’ and staff’s health is top priority. A gathering of over 150 students and teachers is not a risk that we feel comfortable taking at this time. Several other locations have canceled as well. The contest may or may not be rescheduled. We will continue to monitor the situation with the COVID-19 virus and school closures.
All checks that have been sent in for payment will not be deposited. We will shred them unless you request otherwise.
Information about the state contest will be decided by the ACTM board at a later date.
Thanks for your understanding.
