FHSAA Accepting Nominations For Heart of the Arts Award

The FHSAA is seeking nominations for the NFHS Heart of the Arts Award. The recipient could be any student, adult or group associated with the school's performing arts program. This award, which is similar to the Spirit of Sport Award, covers a plethora of performing arts disciplines: Music, Speech, Debate, Theatre, Visual Arts and other performing arts activities that state associations may sponsor. This award seeks to recognize those individuals who exemplify the ideals of the positive heart of the arts that represent the core mission of education-based activities. The award may be given in recognition of a specific act or for an activity of longer duration. The nomination must be for something that occurred between January 1, 2017 and January 31, 2018. Nominated individuals do not necessarily need to still be enrolled in high school at the time of the nomination. The FHSAA will then review all nominations, select the one nomination it deems worthy, sign the nomination form indicating its endorsement and approval and forward it to the NFHS. The FHSAA must submit just one nominee to the NFHS.

If you have a candidate you wish to nominate, please complete and return this nomination form to the FHSAA no later than Monday, January 29, 2018.  It must be submitted electronically by completing the form and e-mailing it to Kyle Niblett at kniblett [at] fhsaa [dot] org (kniblett [at] fhsaa [dot] org). Hard copy submissions will not be reviewed.
