Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

More Minnesotans, especially those in the Southwest Minnesota Region, will be able to participate in the arts. Following the conference, the attendees will be asked to fill out an evaluation form regarding its effectiveness for assisting the board in developing programming that will help more of the community to participate in the arts.

Measurable Outcome(s)

My attendance at Southwest Minnesota String Festival camp allowed me to improve my technique on violin as I enter college. It will definitely help prepare me for a career in music education, as well as my performance with Brookings Community Orchestra.
