Arts in Action Awards

The mission of The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion’s Arts in Action award program is to recognize, reward and encourage talent and achievement in the performing arts among middle and junior high school students around the greater Houston area.


The Arts in Action awards program honors middle and junior high school performing arts students nominated by their music teacher/director, not only for their excellence as artists, but for the dedication, leadership and commitment to their entire school community.


Space is limited. Award winners will receive a certificate and small prize for their honor from The Pavilion and will be featured on The Pavilion website, social media outlets and additional creative content to celebrate school performing arts programs and arts education in our area.


Online nomination forms are due by Friday, March 12 at 5 p.m. Winners will be notified no later than Friday, March 26, 2021. Winners will be virtually recognized sometime in April.
