- The performance will be on the west steps of the Colorado State Capitol. A microphone/sound system and electricity will be available.
- Audition requests must include a recording of your selection. Record your selection as you intend to perform it at the rally (if selected), including all accompaniment, props, costumes, clothing, etc., then double-check to make sure the recording works after you record it. Recording may be submitted in one of two ways.

- On the form, a link to your file stored on a cloud site such as Google Drive or DropBox (if 2MB or larger)
- Improve your chances of being selected to perform by observing the following:
- Follow the submission rules exactly.
- We prefer traditional/patriotic music and style for this event.
- Performance clothing: Boys are asked to wear dress pants (no jeans) and a collared shirt or dress shirt and tie. Girls are asked to wear loose-fitting, well-covering dresses or skirts & tops. (They should be especially aware of skirt length to be at least knee-length, since the steps/staging area is elevated.)
- We consider auditions using a variety of factors, including adherence to the submission rules, style of performance, etc.
- Decisions by the Homeschool Day at the Capitol coordinator are final.
- Audition requests must be submitted by March 30th. You can expect to hear results after April 6th; we will notify you as quickly as possible so that you can make your plans for the event accordingly.
