Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Musicians in grades 7-12 living in a 50-mile driving distance of Rochester may participate in the scholarship competition. Winners recitals are free and provide an opportunity for Minnesotans to hear high-quality performances. The recitals may be viewed on YouTube. Some competitors will be interviewed about their experience after their performances. After the competition, participants and their parents will be surveyed to evaluate their experience. Recital attendance and YouTube views will help determine if we have reached our target audiences.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We had an increase of nearly 17% in competition entrants from last year. Our goal of providing a highly organized, professional competition was met as evidenced by the many positive comments on our surveys, including those from our adjudicators.
