Good Afternoon,


The All State Committee met to tie up some loose ends for this year.  This has been an unusual year to be sure.  We are all figuring out how to deal with students when there are so many unknown factors.  Thank you for what you do for North Dakota students.  Music is so important for them in these uncertain times.

Unfortunately due to the many closings by the governor due to COVID-19 and with no change in the foreseable future, we will not be able to reschedule All State. 


Refunds will be sent to schools not including late fees during the first week of May.  We will also be sending out cerficates/folders/programs/4-year awards as well to your schools to be distributed to students.  


Please collect original All-State Music from students and send it by May 22nd to

Attached is  an order form for you to share with your students.  $15 for orders postmarked by  May 1.  $17 for orders after May 1. Students should send their orders directly to Jon Baumann. All information is included on the order form.  The form will also be posted on the North Dakota All State website.
