Teachers may order awards through the Shop or from the MMTA Office. Display awards and posters for a teacher's studio are available for purchase through the Shop.
All awards are free to students. Any charge attached to a student award is for Shipping & Handling, which can be viewed on the MMTA Order Form:
Ribbons and pins may be ordered at any time. (Note: Availability of items may be limited in Spring - please plan accordingly.)
Deadlines for trophy orders are November 15th, March 20th, and May 20th.
- Trophies ordered between deadlines will be automatically placed into the group for the next upcoming deadline.
- No matter when the trophy order is placed, the order will be submitted to the trophy company the day after each deadline.
- Completed trophies will be available for pick-up or shipping roughly 4-10 weeks after each deadline.
- Teachers wishing to have completed trophies in time for Spring recitals and/or graduation open houses are encouraged to order prior to or on the March 20th deadline.
