The Juvies!

We put together a small awards committee who saw all the programming in the Juvenis Festival and wanted to give out awards based on all the amazing things they saw! These awards are not just based on performances, but merit as well throughout the process. It is important to us that everyone understands these aren't "The Best" of each category, but an achievement we wish to recognize for hard work, passion, determination and the actual performance. With all this in mind, here are the nominees for the first ever JUVIES!

And the nominees are...
