SJCA invites your nomination honoring a cultural champion, someone whose generosity, commitment and special skills who has made a significant contribution to your organization.  Please fill out the online Nomination Form below by April 6.  We will only be accepting the first ten nominations so get them in early!  The awards are blown glass from Wheaton Arts and take time to create and engrave.

We ask that you purchase yours and your honoree’s tickets as well as purchase an ad for the digital slide show. The ads will be part of a slide show featuring member photos sprinkled with ads that will be looping throughout the networking time.  After the event, your nominee and description will be listed and if you purchase an ad, your logo will be listed as a supporter on the SJCA website under Encore 2018.  The glass Encore Award for your nominee is complimentary.

Please note: The award presentations will be done as a group and does not involve going on a stage. All honorees will be acknowledged standing as a group in the front row.  SJCA’s board chair will shake hands & individually present the awards.

Photography is allowed.  We’ll have an award available during the networking time if you’d like to take pictures of your honoree with their award.
