Festival Director Info Letters
Did you know that you can access festival director information on this site? The festival mailings sent out by host directors are posted under each festival as a pdf. Just go to the FESTIVALS menu link and choose the type of festival (High School, Jr. High, Elementary) and find the festival to see the letter that is linked under each festival's date, location, and host information. So, before firing off an email or making a phone call to a host, check here first to see if the letter answers your question!
