The Overture Awards is a program that recognizes, encourages, and rewards excellence in the arts among Greater Cincinnati students in grades 9-12. Its mission is to encourage arts education as an integral part of a student’s academic experience and to create an environment that encourages training in, and appreciation of, the arts. The Overture Awards Competition is the area’s largest solo arts competition and offers awards in six artistic disciplines: creative writing, dance, instrumental music, theater, visual art, and vocal music. For the 2022 competition, students may win $3,000 (one awarded in each discipline) or $1,000 finalist award. Judges at all levels of the competition are drawn from the professional arts community.
Best of luck in the Regional Competition to OHHS Art and Design students Henry Groh, Flynn Koehler, Skylei James, Sophia Osborne, and Mars Shorten who were nominated by Ms. Schorsch to participate in this year’s competition. Check out a sampling of their portfolio of work submissions below:
