First Runner-up will receive $300, Second Runner-up will receive $200, and the Horizon Award winner will receive $100.  There are perks for all of the top promising songwriters including constructive feedback on their songs and opportunities to perform.

Refreshments will be available, and the event is free and the public is welcome.  Come and help us celebrate!
