The Robert George Jackson Special Award was created to award dancers who show “exceptional commitment and potential in dance.” Jackson’s estate donated $25,000 to create the new award to support emerging artists and maybe get them off the ramen noodles.
The awards are given to students who have successfully received a scholarship with the NSTT. The Scholarship Selection Committee is comprised of 12 Nova Scotian artists representing different disciplines.
Deadline is Sunday, May 15. To check out a list of scholarships and other awards, check out www.nstalenttrust.ns.ca.
