    Youth In Harmony Outreach Guidelines

    Back-to-school is just around the corner within the M-AD (and has already occurred in some jurisdictions), and many of our chapters, quartets and choruses are eager to engage music educators to get involved in a barbershop outreach program at their local schools. This is a good thing! That said, it's critical to the success of our outreach efforts that we always leave the music educator with the best possible impression of the barbershop art form and how it can enhance/augment the teacher's music education program.

    MAD Chorus Plateau Definitions

    Chorus plateau categories are based on the average percentile results
    from the two previous contests in which the chorus was entered.

    AAAA70% and above
    AAA60 - 69.9%
    AA55 - 59.9%
    A54.9% and below.

    First-time competitors will not be eligible for plateau awards,
    but their initial contest score can be used to place them in their next contest.
    A chorus that has not competed in any contest for more than four years
    will reenter the contest cycle as a Plateau A chorus.
