This is a bi-annual competition held in January. Students compete with a 3-10 minute memorized selection by Frederic Chopin. Students in grades 7-12 of Kenosha or Racine Music Teachers Associations members are eligible to enter, as well as students of other Kenosha County teachers. There are junior and senior divisions, and monetary prizes are awarded in each division. All performers receive a certificate and a written evaluation. A Winner's Recital is held at a later date.
