Deadlines for TFC Competitors
Congratulations to state Talents For Christ winners! If you have students who have qualified for the national competition, please prompt them to keep in mind two important deadlines. May 18 is the cutoff date for registering for the group and open competition. May 18 is also the deadline for scholarship competitors to inform Kristen Nolan that they are planning on competing at the national level. June 1 is the deadline for submitting all required materials. Please remind students to meet these deadlines to avoid deduction of points. Be in prayer for these students as they prepare and as they use their talents to serve God in their churches!
