We are looking for your nominations! There are four catagories of award in 2018:

Young Music-Maker
The award to go to the panel's choice of the best nomination for young music-maker of the past year (from the date the panel convenes). The young musician should be resident in AND/OR attend school in Lincolnshire. The assessment should be based on the student's participation in public performances not examination results.

The Arthur Hull Award for the Most Promising Young Jazz Musician
The award to go to the panel's choice of the best nomination for the young jazz musician who shows most promise for the future. The young musician should be resident in AND/OR attend school in Lincolnshire.

Inspirational Music Leader
This is open to anyone who is nominated on the basis of the quality and influence of their work within Lincolnshire.

School Music Department
This is open to LA schools, free schools and academies but not independent schools.  The award should go the school that has offered the best opportunities to its pupils taking onto account quality and range of activities and level of commitment.

Please download and complete the Nomination Form with your chosen nominee/s.

The nomination form should be sent by email to Emma.Rowitt@lincolnshire.gov.uk by Friday 11 May 2018.

General Criteria:
All nominations for awards should be assessed equally regardless of the musical genre they represent. 
The selection criteria and the assessment panel should be determined so that this principle is not compromised.

In all cases, the first stage would be nomination accompanied by supporting statement.  From the nominations, the panel would shortlist up to 6 entries in each of the three categories. 

In the Young Music-Maker and Most Promising Young Jazz Musician categories, the final stage will be an online voting process.

For the School Music Department, the nominees would be invited to submit supporting evidence and the panel would make the final decision.

The panel would comprise a representation from Hub members and two or three young people elected by their peers (but from disinterested schools).  For the avoidance of doubt, students from shortlisted schools would not be eligible for election.
