Elementary NCCSA Fine Arts Competition Results

2023 Elementary Fine Arts Competitions

Our upper elementary students have been working hard to learn different elements from the fine arts. Each elementary class has certain special fine arts classes each week: music, choir, and art. During elementary specials, our teachers help prepare them for the NCCSA Fine Arts competition. This year our students competed in a variety of categories: band, choir, art, spelling bee, academic testing, piano, instrumental and vocal solos. Throughout the school year, students have been preparing for the 2-day competition hosted at Faith Christian Academy in Goldsboro, NC on April 27-28, 2023.

Our students that participated in the art categories had their artwork dropped off early on Monday for the judging to take place before Thursday. The art was displayed throughout the week so students from other schools could walk through the displays of art. On Thursday, our elementary solo competitors left school to participate. We had a handful of students participate in solo or small group competitions.

On Friday, our elementary students left for the competition. This group consisted of students from the third through the sixth grade. They participated in various solo and group activities such as instrumental or vocal groupings. The students were also able to walk through the art exhibit and look at pieces from various schools.
