This award is presented at the end of each school year to graduating students that are nominated by faculty and peers in their area of study. Those nominated will be notified and expected to fill out an application. Finalists are then expected to create a short presentation about their contributions to the department. After these presentations, the faculty will select one student to be an Outstanding Student recipient for each award. Submissions are due Friday, March 2. For more information, click here.
Utah Valley University is seeking scripts for child audiences from Utah College student playwrights for its fourth annual Old Miner Children’s Playwriting Contest. The deadline has been extended to Thursday, January 25. The winning Utah college student playwright receives a $250 cash prize plus a staged reading and workshop development as well as opportunities to work with the national division winner. An additional $500 “Strike It Rich” prize may be awarded for the winning script in either division or shared between the two winners, if the play is based on the life of a real child.
