ARTS EDUCATION AWARDS

The Arts Education Awards is a distinguished annual event held by Monmouth Arts to honor and acknowledge the power of arts education in Monmouth County. At the ceremony, Monmouth Arts gives out six awards and two Emerging Artist Scholarships while guests are entertained by exciting performances and presentations. 

Applications are now open! We invite the public to nominate educators who they believe embody what it means to enhance, teach, and advocate for arts education in Monmouth County. Students can also apply for the Emerging Artist Scholarships, which award $500 scholarships to two deserving Monmouth County high school seniors who are committed to pursuing the arts in higher education. Click the buttons below to learn more. The deadline to submit is April 30, 2021. Due to the pandemic, the Arts Education Awards will be hosted virtually this year. More details will be announced soon!
