The Arts Council is currently accepting nominations for their annual Applause Awards, which recognize members and organizations in the community for their work in supporting, promoting and furthering the arts in our Greater Lansing region. Seven different categories are presented each year, including the Ted Sondag Individual Leadership Award, Business Leadership Award, Civic Leadership Award, Individual Artist Award, Arts and Cultural Organization Award, Arts Educator Award and the Creative Community Award.
The aim of the Applause Awards is to recognize individuals, businesses, organizations and other advocates who have made significant contributions to the arts in the Capital Region through their leadership, commitment, vision and support.
We encourage everyone to make a nomination (or several) of any persons deserving of an Applause Award. The application is online and simple to fill out. Deadline for nominations is Monday, Oct. 15, 2018 at 11:59 p.m.
