To be considered for this award, student candidates from North County San Diego must submit a typed 1-2 page application, which includes the following information:

Additionally, applicants must include a Letter of Recommendation from their high school performing arts instructor, and a video tape/ DVD of their own performance. The video recording should be no longer than five minutes and should showcase the student’s best efforts.

Participants are asked to make sure their music, dance, or dramatic presentation underscores their talents and shows performers at their best. The camera should be focused on the performer rather than a large group.

The OCAF will not accept audio CDs as its members need to see performances. Students are advised not to use YouTube, because the web distortion will not show them to their best advantage.
