2015 RISING STAR - Performing Artist Professional Development Award

The Arts Council established the Rising Star award in 2003 to provide opportunities for emerging performing artists with roots in Howard County and to assist them in the development and practice of their art. Selected applicants will be auditioned and 10 artists will be selected as finalists. Each finalist performs at the Celebration of the Arts gala. Audience members then vote to decide the winner and the announcement is made on stage!

Congratulations to the 2014 Rising Star Award winner, Steven Eddy.

Guidelines for the 2015 Rising Star Competition are available here. Deadline to apply is November 1, 2014.
