Community Awards

2020 Arts Person of the Year & Fine Arts Teacher of the Year to Be Announced

Date to Be Announced Soon

Due to the cancellation of the 2020 Celebration of the ARTS, we are excited to announce that we’ll be awarding this year’s awards at the Charlotte Symphony concert in the Fall of 2021. We hope you can join us and find out who has made a significant positive impact on the arts in Stanly County, who has worked diligently to support, promote, create quality arts experiences for the whole community, and ignite the spark with our youth.

For any questions regarding these awards or the nomination and winner selection process, please email us, or call 704-982-8118 (leave a message).
