Virginians for the Arts, in partnership with Dominion Resources will present the second Dominion ArtStars Awards in 2012. The awards will recognize a total of 10 arts organizations across the state that best demonstrate the ability to enhance the community, lift our spirits, and build a better quality of life.
Two awards will be made in each of the five regions of the state:
The Shining Star Award of $5,000 will be presented to an organization with more than 10 years in operation that has an extraordinary impact on the community, successfully develops community partnerships, as well as business, legislative, and local community support; contributes to K-12 education; quality of entry and has demonstrated sustained excellence over the years (stood the "test of time").
The Rising Star Award of $1,000 will be presented to the organization that meets all the criteria for the Shining Star Award but is an organization that has been in existence for 10 years or less.
Entries are due June 1, 2012!
