So, you want to enter in the 2013 WQED Musical Kids Contest. We are excited to hear your entry and share in your passion for this great music. Before you do there are a couple of things you should do first.
As Official Rules tend to be, this page is probably the most boring. However, it is the most important, and controls the terms and conditions of the Contest. If you have any questions about policy, or pretty much anything else WQED Musical Kids related, the answer will be here. You must read this entire document. Your parents must read it too.
The entry form will provide us with all of your contact information and other pertinent information about you and about the piece of music that you plan to submit as your Contest submission. The entry form also includes the Artistic Statement, explained in the next paragraph.

This is something to start thinking about now. An artistic statement is required for all entrants. This is a single paragraph answering one question from a set of questions found at the bottom of the entry form. Be creative! These give an insight into your personality and musicality. However, please check grammar, spelling and other standard writing guidelines.
By the way, in case you missed it above, you only have to answer one of the questions. We don't mind it if you incorporate all of the questions into your paragraph, however you really don't have to work that hard. We are sure you have something more interesting to do.
THIS form must be read and signed by your parent or your legal guardian. This form is required! If we do not receive this form with your submission we will not be able to enter your submission in the Contest. Please make sure that this signed form is returned!

When you burn your CD/DVD, you can do it in the traditional manner of creating a music CD or a video DVD, however you may be able to save yourself some time and hassle by just burning the file to the disc as a file. Both ways work equally well.
