For over three decades, the Music Association of Minnetonka has sponsored an annual scholarship competition for high school musicians in the greater Twin Cities area. The competition selects musicians whose artistic qualities, potential, and desire compel them to continue the study of music. Our goal is to encourage young musicians to continue the tradition of music performance. A list of winners from previous years may be found here.
The 2017 competition date and registration deadline will be announced in the spring of 2017.

Applicants must be a high school junior or senior and live or study in the greater Twin Cities area.
