The James C. Macdonald Performing Arts Scholarship Competition


About the scholarship

Annually, the McLean Community Center recognizes the hard work and talent of young performing artists through the James C. Macdonald Performing Arts Scholarship Competition. Following a preliminary round and final round of competition, three prizes (1st - $1,200; 2nd - $800, and 3rd - $400) are awarded in each of four categories: Dance, Theater, Instrumental Music and Vocal Music. In 2020, the 1st place Instrumental Award was named in honor of Anita Lamkin, a longtime friend of young musicians and supporter of music performances in McLean.
