The Eleventh Annual
Award for Excellence in the Arts Program
Saturday, May 3, 2014 at 2:00 pm
The Terrace Theater
With Support From
The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts
Inaugurated in 2004 under the inspiration of Helen Henderson, this award program recognizes high school juniors in the Washington metropolitan area public, charter, and private high schools with either an Award for Excellence or a Certificate of Merit which documents their artistic talent and is a point of distinction on their application to the college of their choice. These students are recognized in the disciplines of art, dance, drama, literature, music, and musical theatre.
We have a cherished tradition during the Awards ceremony of bringing back alumni from our previous year to either perform on the Kennedy Center stage or display their artwork during our program. All Award winners and Merit recipients are invited to audition for this opportunity to provide the audience with a little entertainment and, hopefully, inspiration. This is yet another way in which our chapter works to fulfill our mission of supporting young talent!
Among past winners and performers are a number of international students who have attended Washington area high schools. In 2013, the Award for Excellence Program recognized over 100 high school juniors from 32 different high schools in the Washington metropolitan area. The students were excited, the parents were proud, and the teachers were happy.
