NATIONAL COMPETITION (SCHOLARSHIP ONLY)

Who’s Eligible?

  • All first- and second-place state winners
  • Anyone who receives a state competition score high enough for a first- or second-place ranking even though the person may not have won first- or second-place

If you live in a state that does not have a state competition, you may still participate in TFC. Send to the TFC office a video of one of your performance pieces or a two-minute clip of your speaking presentation. We will then evaluate your performance or presentation to determine if you are at the level to compete in the TFC national competition. You will not be judged, and you will not receive a state scholarship. You must meet the same qualification requirements as stated above for those entering state competition. Call the TFC office at 888.588.1600, ext. 879, for details.

When and Where?

  • Thursday, June 28, 2018. Winners will be announced Friday morning, June 29.
  • Hamilton Hills Baptist Church in Fishers, Indiana (Indianapolis area), the site of the 2018 GARBC Conference
