The American Prize reaches an important MILESTONE

The American Prize national non-profit competitions in the performing arts has reached a major milestone. With the awarding of its 2012 prizes to composers, vocalists and pianists earlier this summer,  The American Prize has surpassed $10,000 in cash prizes awarded to winners since 2010.

"I am delighted we have reached this milestone in being able to recognize and reward many individual performing artists and performing arts ensembles as winners of The American Prize," said David Katz, chief judge of the competitions.

"In the months ahead, we plan to redouble our efforts to bring awareness of The American Prize not only to many unheralded or under-appreciated performing artists in the country, but also to donors who may be attracted to our unique mission. Although The American Prize will always be more than monetary, and as the size of the individual awards increases with the competition's growing reputation, the ten-thousand dollar figure represents a serious level of interest and support of these unique contests," Katz said.

Donations to The American Prize are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. To make a donation, please follow this link.
