Student Chapter Awards
Get recognized! Submit your student chapter for an award. Winners will be announced at ASTA National Conference, awarded a commemorative plaque, and recognized in the American String Teacher journal.
Outstanding Student Chapter and Most Improved Student Chapter Awards
The Outstanding Student Chapter Award and Most Improved Student Chapter Award honors two student chapters that are actively involved in promoting strings at their college or university, and in their surrounding community. Those chapters that represent themselves through activities and performances both on and off campus, and demonstrate their impact on string education and the strings profession, will be considered for either of these awards.
Student Exemplary Service Award
The Student Exemplary Service Award recognizes college string students who distinguish themselves as active members and supporters in the strings community both on and off campus. These students will have contributed to school and community activities, events, outreach programs, or performances, held a leadership role in their student chapter or in their strings classes, and have participated in any of their state chapter's events or activities.
