Kids: Get National Recognition!

If you're a rising high school senior, you can apply to the annual ARTS Awards in categories such as Film & Video, Theater, Visual Arts, Photography, Writing, Music, and Dance. The national ARTS talent search offers college scholarships and cash prizes to students for their artistic works, and the ARTS program is the exclusive nominating organization to the Presidential Scholars in the Arts program sponsored by the White House. This year, a student from Hawaii had the honor of receiving this highly competitive and coveted distinction: actor/singer/dancer Julia Ogilvie of Punahou School was an ARTS Winner in Musical Theater before being selected as a Presidential Scholar in the Arts.

Deadline for the 2006 ARTS Awards is October 1, 2005 so kids: start making art! (And come back to shoot a film in Hawaii after you get big and famous...or small and obscure...it doesn't really matter, just shoot!)
