About the Bettie Awards Program
Bettie Delaplaine was a lifelong supporter of the arts in Frederick County, Maryland. Her strong belief in the importance of the arts in our community, and the importance of supporting young emerging artists, inspired The Delaplaine Arts Center to create the Elizabeth Barker Delaplaine Award for Young Artists in her honor. The award program is an annual event run in March, nationally recognized as Youth Art Month.
The program has several goals:
- To help young artists gain experience in submitting their own artwork for review and exhibition.
- To provide an experience of having their artwork judged and understand the importance of presentation.
- To provide an accomplishment that can be added to college, art school, or professional applications.
Prize money for the Bettie Award is sponsored in part by a generous gift from the Frederick County Art Association.
Stop back for guidelines and more information about the 2021 program in late summer 2020.
