Are you Howard County’s next rising star?
Each year, we choose up to 10 rising stars to compete for our $5,000 Rising Star Award. Emerging performing artists with roots in Howard County can apply to be among the finalists who will perform at our Celebration gala — with the winner voted on by the audience!
The competition is open to performers, both individuals and ensembles (up to four members), ages 18-35, who live, train, work or perform regularly in Howard County or have done so in the past.
We’re currently accepting applications for the 2021 Rising Star Performing Arts Competition.
