Founded in 2009, The American Prize is a series of annual, non-profit, national competitions designed to recognize and reward the very best in the performing arts in the United States—in schools and churches, and at community and professional levels.
The American Prize in Composition—Choral Division is designed to evaluate and reward composers of choral works which have already been performed and recorded. The performance may be by a student, community or professional ensemble. The Student Composer Division Prize is awarded to composers actively engaged in learning the art and craft of composition in a school or other educational setting.
