We are officially holding our 4th annual online contest to select “The Star Spangled Banner” singer(s) for this year’s General Session at the NFPA Conference & Expo in Boston on Sunday, June 4th - and the submission period opens today!
If you (or your group of up to 5 singers) want to share your talent with our Conference attendees, please submit an audition video through our website, www.nfpa.org/anthem or through our Facebook page by March 15th. Finalists will be selected by a panel of judges and then public voting will choose a winner.
Voting will take place on the NFPA website and through a Facebook Live poll from 10:00 AM Eastern Time (ET) to 2:00 PM ET on March 20, 2017 - so mark the date! Viewers will be able to vote once for their favorite entry during this time.
The contest winner(s) will receive a roundtrip flight to Boston, one-night hotel accommodations and full conference registration to the NFPA Conference & Expo where they will perform the national anthem in front of more than 3,000 attendees. The winner(s) will be announced on March 27th.
