2017 ACE Award nominee
I'm honored to have been nominated for an ACE Award this year! The ACE (arts, culture and education) Awards are presented annually by 40 North | 88 West in conjunction with National Arts and Humanities Month to honor the work of artists, teachers, businesses, individuals, organizations, volunteers, community and government leaders. Each award highlights a different part of the cultural life of our community and celebrates those that, through hard work, dedication, and creative energy, cultivate the arts of Champaign County.
The seven ACE Award categories are: Advocate, Artist, Volunteer, Business, Teacher, Student, and Lifetime Achievement. Nominations are reviewed by an independent panel of community-based judges representing a broad cross-section of Champaign County.
