1. Ribbons will be given on a basis of merit:
Gold Ribbon: 87 - 100
Silver Ribbon: 82 - 86
Participant Ribbon: 81 and under
Performers must attain a mark of 85 or higher to be recommended for Provincials.
2. Performers who do not wish to compete for a mark may enter for adjudication only in the non-competitive classes (see page 43).
3. Performers should plan to be available to receive their award at an honours concert and to perform if requested. Selection of performers at this concert requires a meeting of the Festival Committee. In order to plan a well-balanced concert program, we also consider adjudicators’ recommendations. We will do our utmost to let you know at least a day before the Honours Concert whether or not you will be asked to perform.
4. Two ribbons are supplied for duet entries. For other group entries only one ribbon is supplied. Extra ribbons may be obtained for a fee of $1.00 per ribbon. Requests should be made to the coordinator not later than the end of the session in which the ribbon is awarded.
Scholarships and Bursaries
Lakes District Festival Association Bursary
The Festival Association pays the entry fee for local performers to attend the Provincial Festival of Performing Arts BC, if recommended by the adjudicators. An application form is not required for this bursary; a committee member will approach the performer.
Lakes District Festival Association Scholarships
The Festival Committee determines the number of scholar-ships. When awarding scholarships, the Festival Committee takes into consideration the competitor’s age and area of residence, as well as the high level of performance.
