The Award for Excellence in the Arts Program gives participating high schools the opportunity to select one student to receive an Award for Excellence trophy and up to three students to receive a Certificate of Merit. Sponsored by the Washington DC Chapter of The National Society of Arts and Letters and held in conjunction with the Kennedy Center's Education Department, more than 100 high school juniors from approximately 35 different high schools in the DC metro area receive recognition in six artistic disciplines--visual art, dance, drama, literature, music, and musical theater. Additionally, the Program has a cherished tradition of bringing back "alumni" from the previous year to perform on stage and salute the awardees.
Performance Timing: 2 hours, with no intermission.
This event is a FREE event. Ticket reservations are available through the Presenter only. For further information and to make reservations, please contact (919) 423-1100.
