This year INPSS is celebrating the 12th Anniversary for the New Praise Festival which welcomes all the children and youth up to 12th grade who want to praise God with music! Though many music major students also participate in this event, you don't need to be music major, for God accepts all as we are. Nevertheless we want to give God our best, don't we? Therefore, we want to give various prizes according to how beautiful your music is, how hard you practiced. But God will also give you secret prize according to how earnest you prayed for it and how much you love Jesus.

What you should prepare: preferably hymn arrangement in classical music style
How many: one or two pieces (if one piece is longer than 5 min., that's enough!)
What category: virtually any instrument like piano, string, wind, brass, solo, instrument ensemble up to ten players, or voice solo, choir goes!

Prize: Grand prize
(Invitation to perform at the winner's recital in one of those cities where this event happens like Seoul, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou: Half of air ticket price for one person will be sponsored by INPSS or sponsoring church, only when you go there and perform, and ride and three nights of home stay up to three people will be also provided. There were times when no grand prize was given in China, also there were times when two grand prizes were given in Korea. So whether grand prize would be given or not depends on how musically and spiritually amazing your praise music is. Also it is to remember that this competition is not just music competition, but praise music competition, so there are many other factors affecting the decision of the judge. All the participants are to believe that the most glorious prize is given by God who knows everyone's heart.)

           Gold prize
(Invitation to perform at the winner's recital in one of those cities where this event happens like Seoul, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou: Air ticket at your own expense, but ride and three nights of home stay up to three people will be provided.)

Silver prize (certificate)
           Bronze prize (certificate)
           Honorable mention (certificate)
Special Prize:
           The Oldham County Schools Art Center Prize 
(two participants will be given full scholarship for its summer arts programming 2012)

Application due: March 24, 2012
Application fee: 35 dollars for each participant
(If duet, fee is 70 dollars. But in case someone just accompanies the other who is a sole participant in duet, the fee is $ 35.
          From trio, it is 100 dollars regardless of how many you are. Refugee and needy family are encouraged to send email for help regarding application fee.
          There shouldn't be any child who cannot participate, even as he/ she wanted to, because his/ her family cannot afford it.)

When: Competition on March 31. / Winners' Recital and Award Ceremony on April  7. / Second Recital on April 14.
Where: Heeren Hall of the SBTS (March 31. from 9:00 am)
