The Pageant of the Arts is a combination of four competitions for high school students in the areas of art, dance, music (vocalist and instrumentalist), and speech.  The competitions are held simultaneously in a building complex at Loyola Marymount University which includes an art exhibit space, a music auditorium, a dance studio and an adjacent building for the speech contest.  Individuals and teams compete for 1st, 2nd, 3rd place and Honorable Mention in each contest.

Chair, Kathrine Russell, and her team do an excellent job of organizing and directing each area of competition.  They have all been performing this labor of love for several years and are committed to the event.
 
Each club in the District can enter one student in each area of competition.  Some clubs conduct their own competitions in order to send the top winner to the Pageant.  However, it is not necessary to host a competition.  Clubs may have their local high school, boys & girls club, or YMCA nominate a student to compete in any one of the areas of competition.  Attending the Pageant is an awesome experience as you see the wonderful talent that is brought to the event.
 
District Rotarians are strongly encouraged to attend this dynamic event.  We also invite the top winners to attend either the District conference or a District breakfast to showcase their talent.  It is important for clubs to begin the process now to identify possible high school students for these competitions.  Any questions can be directed to Kathrine Russell at her email address: kruss922@gmail.com
