Description Beginning in 2016, the Beverly Soule Memorial Scholarship competition is open to high school juniors and seniors studying with a member of the Eugene District OMTA, whether or not the applicant plans to continue music studies after graduation. A junior who wins the award is not eligible to compete the following year. The adjudication will take place in a neutral setting with an adjudicator selected from outside the Eugene District. The adjudicator will give written comments to each student in a format of his or her choosing. The performance will be judged on overall quality with attention to musicianship which includes dynamics, articulation, rhythm, pedal, sensitivity, and imagination. Fluency is also taken into consideration although a small slip of memory or occasional note error should not affect the outcome. The winner is presented with a cash award and invited to perform at the Teacher Showcase as well as the June potluck.
