  • Some states have a Junior High competition. Check with your local director.
  • Members or regular attenders in good standing of a church or mission church/church plant in fellowship with the General Association of Regular Baptist 

WHO QUALIFIES FOR NATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP COMPETITION?

  • All first- and second-place state winners in scholarship competition
  • 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.
