The competitions are open only to SENIORS (females and males) in all public high schools in Sarasota and Manatee counties. Competition categories include Visual Arts, Letters (Writing) and Music (visit website for application, specific rules and submission guidelines for each category). Awards range from $1,250 to $2,000. The purpose of the awards is to encourage self-expression, creativity and foster further interest or education in the arts.
In addition to receiving an award, winning students will perform, read or exhibit their winning entries at the Awards luncheon held at Bird Key Yacht Club on Wednesday, April 9, 2024 at 11:30 AM. Guests are also welcome to attend with a lunch purchase.
Additional opportunities will be afforded to the winners to display their artwork, have their writings in print and participate in musical performances as we help to “launch” our student’s future in the arts.
Applications must be completed online. Carefully review eligibility rules for each scholarship category.
