Age Out Form / Yearbook Submission
All graduating members of the MWCGC performing at Championships are encouraged to fill out the Age Out Form by February 28th to be included in the 2018 Yearbook. This includes:

If you are submitting after midnight on 2/28, only complete the mandatory fields. No photo is needed. The form will remain available after the deadline; however, any submissions after the deadline will NOT be included in the yearbook.

Please remember the following guidelines when submitting your photos:

  1. We cannot and will not print any photos that have a photographer's watermark on them -- even if they indicate "ok    for yearbook" because this refers to your HS yearbook not our yearbook. If you upload a photo with a photographers watermark on it, it will not be used.
  2. Attach your electronic photo images directly to this form. This should be a jpg format photo and include your name and school name or Independent Unit Name within the name of the jpg file (example: JaneSmithJustinHighSchool.jpg).
