Elementary Choir


Entries must contain students' actual names. Placeholder entries will not be accepted.
The choir is comprised of 5th and 6th grade students who are nominated by their school's music teacher for their musical skills. Please use the formula below for figuring how many student entries you may submit.

Check your school's total 5th and 6th grade enrollment. If you have 20 or fewer students for your total enrollment, you may bring 4 singers. You may add 1 more singer for every 20 students you have in addition to the first 20.

If you have a total of 75 5th and 6th graders in your school, you may send 7 students to District Honor Choir.
4 students (for the first 20 students)
+1 student (for 21-40 students)
+1 student (for 41-60 students)
+1 student (for 61-80 students)

The participation fee is $10.00 per student. The registration with names are due by December 12. Do not use Student 1 and Student 2. They must be the student's actual name. Please remember that fees need to be in by January 24. Please use the NCKMEA Invoice Generator to create an invoice. Remember to send a copy of the invoice to the NCKMEA Executive Director with your payment. Registration will be online in the KMEA Members site.

KMEA Membership Requirement

The NCKMEA board voted to require membership in NAfME-KMEA in order to register students for NCKMEA honor groups. This is in line with the KMEA policy requiring membership in order to register students for KMEA All-State ensembles.

  1. Join NAfME. Indicate Kansas in your membership profile.
  2. Set up an account in the KMEA Members website. This creates a connection between your NAfME profile and KMEA's registration systems.
  3. After creating an account in the KMEA Members site, select your district affiliation so you may participate in elections.
  4. When registering students for NC district or All-State ensembles, your NAfME ID will be part of the registration.
  5. Do not wait until the deadline day to start this process!
