"Showcase of Talent"

This year Vision Academy of the Arts is going to do a “Showcase of Talent” in the Spring instead of doing “Grand Nite for the Arts.”

Vision Academy of the Arts (VAA), invites any student in our area high schools in their Junior or Senior year who will be applying for scholarships, either this year or next year. Students in music (Choir and/or Band), art, drama, dance, writing or culinary arts to Showcase their talent. Bring your parents, relatives and friends!

Graduates and past recipients of Scholarships will also be performing and giving testimonials on their current progress in College and how they were able to use funds from our scholarship program to help them on their way.

We will be serving Indian Tacos, having live/silent auctions and a donation basket that will give 100% of funds raised to our Senior Scholarship Fund for 2016 and beyond.

So, Juniors and Seniors, parents, relatives and friends, we want to meet you and offer you this chance to Showcase your Talents. This also gives you a chance to meet our professionals in each of the Art Categories and some of the Judges for the scholarship program. Come, share your talent and stories with us. It is why we all work hard to keep the Arts in our young people’s lives.

At a later date, you will be asked to meet with a professional in your chosen field to go over your portfolio and audition ideas. So this is an excellent first opportunity to share your dreams and ambitions with the folks that will be choosing scholarship recipients this year.
