Looking for Church Youth Choir Festival opportunities

I have a very wonderful church youth choir of 12 singers spanning grades 5-12.  They are very talented, motivated and committed to the choral art.  I am looking for enrichment opportunities for them beyond our church worship service obligations.  I would like to involve them in a choral festival (or similar) in the New England area.  Would be most grateful for any recommendations.  Alternatively, are there recommendations for taking such a group on tour?

Not sure how far you're willing to travel, but YouthCUE is an excellent church youth choir organization that holds a number of festivals. Most of their activity is in the south, but they have a festival in DC each summer, with a final concert at the National Cathedral. http://youthcue.org/programs/festivals/2016-nation-s-capital-festival-of-youth-choirs

I have a very similar church youth choir - numbers same, touch older. Keen on challenge. And I have the same questions! No help from me, but I'll be watching this thread for ideas—and know that there is another out there in Ontario.

You might try ACSI.org (Association of Christian Schools International).  They have many wonderful choral festivals.
I have personally participated in, sponsored, adjudacated for, and/or directed mass choirs at several in California.
Start with  < www.acsi.org > and type Choir Festival in the "SEARCH FOR..."  box in the upper right.
