School Awards 2014

Student Scholarships

 

Student Scholarships

Rainbow Stage annually awards Manitoba resident Grade 12 high school students for excellence in musical theatre performance, technical/production work, and musicianship, in support of their post-secondary training endeavours. A Rainbow Stage Education Committee compromised of dedicated board members and volunteers with a wealth of experience in education, music and theatre, audition applicants through a live interview and/or performance process. Winners are then selected, notified and invited to Rainbow Stage to participate in an opening night ceremony where they receive their Student Scholarship certificate and cash award.
– Judy Giesbrecht, 2017-18 Education & Outreach Committee Chairperson
