The winner of an award may not be the one with the top mark.
Technical difficulty of selections, overall quality and number of pieces perfected may also enter into the adjudicator’s decision.

The Deloraine Border Festival may, at its discretion, withdraw an award offered where enough entries are not received to justify a particular award as listed on website.
Participants receiving multiple solo awards in various disciplines are invited to perform at Awards Concert for each discipline, however, only one solo performance is compulsory.  All awards will be listed in program even if not performed.
If you choose to opt out of some performances, or are unable to attend,
please contact either a discipline coordinator or the awards committee so Concert Program may be updated. 
FESTIVAL AWARD WINNER pictures will be publicized on website unless a specific request is made to exclude a performer photo.
Deloraine & Area Border Festival began in 1981 with one major award for top performer in the festival - The ROSE Bowl.

TUDOR Bowl ♦ Piano
In 1990 the major award was renamed the Tudor Bowl as it was realized a Rose Bowl is traditionally awarded in the vocal category.

ROSE Bowl ♦ Vocal
In 1992 the vocal Rose Bowl was added as another major award. The Tudor Bowl would remain a major award for top instrumental performance.

ORATORICAL Cup ♦ Speech Arts
In 1999 the major award of an Oratorical Cup was added for our ever popular speech arts discipline.

VISUAL ARTS Scholarship ♦ Visual Arts
In 2016 a scholarhip was created for a visual arts student showing a high level of artistic skill.

INSTRUMENTAL Scholarship ♦ Instrumental
In 2019 a scholarhip was created for an instrumental student showing a high level of performance excellence.
