High School Music Student Award Program
and Howard County Public School Partnership

Public School System Educational Partnership

Since 2014, when HCPSS Educational Partnerships were formalized, Sundays At Three has been a partner and collaborated with the school system to support its mission of fostering a lifelong appreciation of, enthusiasm for, and participation in music classes.

The Sundays At Three High School Music Student Award Program, which began in 2009, predated formal HCPSS Educational Partnerships, and continues as our primary contribution to the program.

Coaching and other classroom instructional services, given at the request of the music instructional facilitator and music teachers, at 1-2 elementary or middle schools is our second partnership activity.

Sundays At Three also supports concert attendance assignments through its policy of free admission to high school students with or without a paying adult.

High School Music Student Award Program

Sundays At Three established its annual music student award program in 2009. It is carried out with the participation of the band and orchestra teachers in Howard County public high schools. To date, 166 students have been recognized with awards.

Although the program began with one award to a worthy rising senior orchestra or concert band member, it now recognizes a student in each. The teachers determine which rising seniors are deemed worthy of special recognition for participation in small ensemble performance classes. Members of the Sundays@3 Board of Directors present the award to the winners during an ealy June orchestra and concert band class at each school. The award consists of a certificate, $100, and free admission to concerts during the upcoming season for the parents and relatives of the winners.

The award winners, as well as other rising senior orchestra and concert band members, are also eligible to apply for jobs and earn spending-money by helping us at our concerts during their senior year.
