Applications are due two weeks prior to the competition date.

Space is limited to 32 contestants at each location, so apply early.

*If you do not hear from us within a week, please email

When applying via YAPTracker:


  • You'll be asked to create a free YAPTracker account. Make sure that username in that system is the applicant's name (singer), not the parent's name.
  • Every applicant/singer will need a separate account in order to apply.


Special note to families and teachers:


  • If you would like to register multiple singers for the event, you should apply in succession, logging out of the one account before logging back in to the other. Again, use the singer's name to register for the YAPTracker account.
  • You should not open two browser tabs or windows at the same time.
  • If you are registering multiple singers, you can check on the status of your application by emailing
