- Creative writing: An entry is defined as an original composition in the form of a sonnet, lyric, or narrative poem. The composition should not exceed two double-spaced pages in length, originated by the applicant.
- Dance: An entry is defined as an original short dance composition of three to ten minutes composed for solo or ensemble dancers in any appropriate movement style, originated by the applicant.
- Music: An entry is defined as an original composition of three to ten minutes for solo or small ensemble (recommended no more than five parts), vocal, or instrumental in any appropriate style, originated by the applicant

Students will be allowed to compete in one area only; jointly produced compositions are not eligible. Students receiving the scholarships must be United States citizens who have attended the state's public schools for the past two consecutive years. High school student enrollment determines the number of entries a school can enter in each discipline area. Finalists will be invited to participate and must attend the scholarship competition.

A panel of professionals in each of the five arts areas will select a recipient in each of the disciplines. The decision of the judges is final.
Students may compete in one arts area only.
Compositions/artworks and process folios each count 50 percent toward the total score.

For more information, contact R. Scot Hockman or your high school guidance counselor.
