2013 Shooting Stars Recognition, Scholarship & Awards
The Arts make an important contribution to any community’s quality of life and are an essential part of every student’s educational experience, teaching 21st Century workplace skills, innovation, critical thinking, collaboration, communication and self-expression. The Shooting Stars Program celebrates young artists and arts educators for their artistic achievements with college scholarships, awards and honorariums.
To date, The Shooting Stars Program has recognized almost 1,000 high school seniors for artistic excellence and contributions to their community.
Nine first place scholarships of $1,400 each, nine second place scholarships of $700 each and nine teacher honorariums* of $350 each will be awarded (*to the nominating teacher of the first place scholarship recipient) at the Shooting Stars Gala on April 7, 2013. Shooting Stars’ scholarships, awards and teacher honorariums are funded by private donations from corporations, foundations and individuals.
Your support for this vital program is greatly appreciated.
Thank you to those who sponsored the 2012 Shooting Stars Program.
My photography can give people insight into my life and give them a new perspective about theirs; I would feel selfish if I did not share. This [Shooting Stars] program would allow me to share my view, my expressions of the “ordinary” and help me develop my skills as an emerging artist.
