State MPA 2020

piano imageHigh school entries that receive a rating of superior at districts are qualified to apply for State MPA. At this event, students are evaluated by a highly select panel of adjudicators at a state level adjudication.

Bulletins

Before each State event, a bulletin will be posted with instructions specifically for that event. Those bulletins will be linked on both the front page and here.

Information

Directors are responsible for knowing and interpreting regulations to their students. Directors are encouraged to study the MPA sections of the FVA Handbook very carefully. Also, the 2018–19 MPA Omnibus 🆕 contains detailed information about all FVA MPA events.

Application / Registration

Applications are due TEN DAYS after your last district event using the online registration system found at MPA online. Payment is NOT due at the same time. Our executive director, Mark Scott, can be flexible on the timing of your payment as long as you communicate with him. His email address is exec@fva.net.
