The Renaissance Award

The Renaissance Award has been created in an effort to reward the efforts and time of students who have worked deliberately to be involved in every area of Journey. Like the Renaissance Men of old, they have tried to be well-rounded participants. We want to honor that type of curiosity, learning, and discovery, character and service.

The Renaissance Awards are awarded at showcase each session to students who have earned it over the current session. Students must complete this Renaissance Award Application and turn it in by the deadline in order to receive the award. Each winner will receive a membership card from the Artistic Director or a Board Member who will explain the importance of the award to the audience.
