The mission of the Miami Prize® is to honor one outstanding Miami-Dade County Public School senior year visual art student in order to encourage and promote the continuation of their pursuit of excellence.

The purpose of this program is to recognize an outstanding young artist each year. The importance of the Prize lies in its recognition, which far outweighs the monetary gift of $3,000 that accompanies it. The Miami Prize® is awarded directly to the student to help foster financial responsibility.

Upon Applying

The Winner must meet with a Banker, within two weeks of being notified that he/she won the Miami Prize® to learn what is a Budget and Credit Rating, so he/she can learn how to manage their money wisely.

The student has two weeks to submit a plan on how he/she is going to use the money.

In the event that this condition is not met, the Winner might forfeit the prize.

The student holds harmless and releases of all liability, all the persons associated with the Miami Prize®.
