Student Production Awards

Rules and categories for entering the Student Production Awards can be found in the 2021 Call for Entries. Entry Eligibility Period: January 1, 2020 – April 20, 2021. A crystal pillar will be awarded to the school and students responsible for the production will each receive a Student Production Certificate.

We are implementing a new system for submitting entries. We will be using the same program we use to collect the professional awards in a system called Student Express.

The submitter and all entrants whose names you would like listed on the entry must have a FREE account in Student Express before they can be added to an entry. We recommend creating an account for the submitter and each student you are adding before starting the entry process.

You will need to upload a video file, we will no longer be able to accept online links to videos. Take a look at these tips to prepare your video.
