Frequently asked questions

Do members have to attend SLC?

No, not necessarily.  If the student did a home-site test and won't be performing, they don't have to attend SLC.  However, registration remains $50 regardless of attendance status.

Do all members perform?

Every student who enters an event with a performance component will perform at SLC.

May parents attend?

We welcome parents to SLC.  However, if they plan to be present the entire day, they will need to register as guests.  Parents may attend the Grand Awards of Excellence free of charge.
