The Overture Awards is a program that recognizes, encourages and rewards excellence in the arts among Tri-state students in grades 9-12. Its mission is to encourage arts education as an integral part of a student's academic experience and to create an environment that encourages training in, and appreciation of, the arts. The Overture Awards Scholarship Competition is the area's largest solo arts competition and offers scholarships in six artistic disciplines: creative writing, dance, instrumental music, theater, visual art, and vocal music. Students may win a $3,000 scholarship (one awarded in each discipline) or a $500 finalist scholarship (a total of 18 awarded). Judges at all levels of the competition are drawn from the professional arts community.
All forms and information for the 2014 should be updated by September.
