State Finalists


It is with great sadness that we share with you that the Broadway League's 2020 Jimmy Awards program has been canceled due to the disruptions of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

We are encouraging students to submit audition videos, as we are looking for our top State Finalists! 


Students in grades 9-12 playing qualified lead roles in their adjudicated 2019/2020 NHSTA musicals are eligible to apply. Qualified lead roles are determined by the Broadway League. See the 2019/2020 list of qualified lead roles here:  2019-2020 Nationals Qualifying Lead Roles

Applications will be accepted starting in late-January 2020. Eligible students should submit an online application by Sunday, May 10, 2020. To complete the application, please be prepared to submit the following items:

  • One-page resume
  • Headshot photo
  • Audition video No. 1: Perform a solo (32-bar cut) from the qualified lead role you played in your adjudicated 2019/2020 high school musical 
  • Music: Attach the piano/vocal score for the full song (not just the 32-bar cut) featured in video #1.  If the qualifying lead role you played performs more than one solo in the musical, please attach all other piano/vocal scores for those songs

Please note! Videos should showcase your audition abilities. Do NOT submit video from a fully staged or costumed production.
