The following program recognizes and rewards excellence in the arts among Greater Cincinnati students who are studying in grades 9-12. The primary mission of the competition 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, theatre, visual art, and vocal music.
The following 2022 Overture Awards Competition will continue as an online submission and review competition for the Regional and Semi-Final Stages.
