The Loudoun Arts Council has announced the return of the Excellence in the Arts awards program for 2018. High school students may compete for cash prizes in the eight arts categories listed below.
Participants will be judged by professionals in each field, and comments from all judges will be provided in order to help students advance in their artistic endeavors. First and second place winners will be awarded cash prizes of $500 and $250, with additional cash prizes or honorable mentions to be awarded at the judges’ discretion. Winners will also have the opportunity to present their accomplishments at a special public event held in early May at StageCoach Theatre in Ashburn.
Sponsors are needed in each arts category. Contribute to an entire competition or first- or second-place awards in your category of choice. Your sponsorship will include a one-year supporting membership in the arts council for you or your organization, or a one-year extension of your current membership. Sponsors will also be thanked prominently in our printed materials, press releases, and at the awards reception.
To volunteer to help with the program as a judge or in some other way, or to find out more about the many ways you can contribute, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
