Nominations are OPEN for Southwest Minnesota Arts Council's Prairie Disciple Award

The Deadline for nominations is April 15, 2023 by 4:30 pm. Nominations forms are short, but we do recommend letters of support from multiple community members, so the sooner you start collecting, the better! It is SMAC's intention that in recognizing this individual publicly, the award will raise the profile of the arts in our communities and throughout the SMAC region.
The Prairie Disciple Award ($1,000) provides awareness and recognition of one individual per year from southwest Minnesota, whose activities and involvement have substantially contributed to the arts over an extended period of time. The accomplishments of arts advocates working in the region are often not widely known or appreciated, and this award aims to correct that. This person is an arts advocate (it can be an arts teacher or an artist, but it is not limited to those)!
