The theme of Summit 2018 is Reasons for Hope:

1 Peter 3:15-16 (ESV)

15 but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, 16 having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame.

We ask all of our participants to prepare their competition pieces centered on this theme verse. You will find a list of more verses here on our theme page.

Four divisions in Fine Arts competitions:

  • Musical: Piano, Instrumental, and Vocal
  • Non-musical: Public Speaking and Expressive Arts
  • Visual Arts: Photography/Digital, Painting/Drawing, and 3-D (other)
  • Creative Writing

Judges Choice

Select submissions from various categories will be invited to participate during the opening and closing sessions. Invitations will be issued in advance of Summit so students can adequately prepare. An invitation to participate in Judges Choice does not imply winning a Scholarship Award.

Scholarship Awards

The winner of each division will be presented with a $500 scholarship. The winner will be announced at the closing ceremony on Saturday evening. Winners must be present in order to receive the scholarship.
