You must have participated in the performing arts. This includes Band, Choir, Orchestra, Drama and Stage Crew, and be a graduating senior at a participating school.
Submit a 100 word, or more, essay on how participating in the performing arts has assisted you in your core educational classes. Each submission must have two (2) endorsements from any of the performing art instructors at your school. (Band/Orchestra Directors, Choral Directors, and Drama Teachers)
We chose only 100 words because Christopher hated having to write essays and we know that those seniors going on to higher education are already writing a lot of essays.
How to submit your application:
Mail (USPS) your essay, completed endorsement page, and contact information to:
Chris Patterson Memorial Foundation
Attn: Performing Arts Award ( Your school name )
610 Cherrywood Dr.
North Aurora, IL 60542-1032
