2018 Suncoast Student Production Awards

This year’s Suncoast Student Production Awards has new entry categories! The eligibility period to enter the 2018 awards is February 1, 2017 to January 31, 2018. DEADLINE: March 2, 2018. Read more.

The Suncoast Chapter has expanded its Call for Entries to the entire Suncoast Region that includes the State of Florida, the State of Louisiana, the Mobile-Pensacola market area and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.  

AWARDS: For winning entries, the Award (an engraved crystal pillar) is presented to the sponsoring college/university, high school or producing organization. The students involved in the production of the winning entries and honorable mentions receive certificates. Following the distribution of the awards, duplicate awards (crystal pillars) with individual student names will be available at a cost of $145.


It is important to note that College/University or Technical/Vocational school entries are judged in a separate contest from High School entries. The scores produced by these two panels are not combined; instead the scores are interpreted separately for final “cut-off” evaluation.
