ARTS NC STATE SPONSORS TWO STUDENT AWARDS IN
THE PERFORMING ARTS
Two new annual awards recognize student achievement in the performing arts
at NC State University.
The Creative Artist Award
The Creative Artist Award recognizes original work in music, dance and theatre created by NC State students. A committee of music, dance and theatre faculty annually reviews submissions of original work in the fields of music, dance and theatre, and choose the artists who best exemplify the award(s) for Creative Artist. The selected work(s) will be performed in the following academic year by the appropriate ARTS NC STATE performing arts program.
Each winning creative artist(s) receives $500 along with recognition in the following year’s ARTS NC STATE playbill. If one or more artists submit an original work as group, the $500 will be split between members of the group. A corresponding $1,000 grant is given to the appropriate program or department to assist in the production of the selected work by the Music Department, Dance Program and/or University Theatre.
