CONTESTS / CONVENTIONS (in non-Covid19 years)
Each Division holds a convention in the spring, with competitions held for choruses and quartets from the chapters within each Division. The contestants with the highest scores from the Division contest qualifies to compete in the District Contests in the fall. One of the Division Contests includes an International Quartet Preliminary Contest, where quartets scoring sufficient points will go on to represent the District at the Barbershop Harmony Society's International Contest in that summer. Evergreen District's Fall Convention is where qualifying choruses and quartets compete for the District Championships.
The chorus winner of the Fall District Chorus Contest becomes the District Chorus Champion, and goes on to represent the District at the International Chorus Contest the next summer. Should they win the International Contest, they must sit out of competition for two years; otherwise they may return again to Division and District competition each year. The winner of the Fall District Quartet Contest becomes the District (Quartet) Champion, and is retired from further competition at the Division and District levels, although the may continue to compete each year at the International Preliminary Contest in the spring, and the International Contest in the summer. Unlike International Chorus Champions who sit out of competition for two years, once a quartet becomes an International Quartet Champion they are retired from competition permanently.
