The Lewis Prize for Music awards funds to community leaders with the goal of creating "positive change by investing in young people through music." In response to the COVID-19 crisis, the Lewis Prize is opening the portal for 2021 funding applications in Spring instead of late Summer. As they note:
"At The Lewis Prize for Music, we find ourselves in an important and vital position to respond as expeditiously as possible to the needs of the creative youth development music community and the young people it serves. We are compiling and reviewing resources that may assist you in remaining an anchor to the young people around you during this time.
We are doing this alongside preparations to shift the opening of the 2021 Lewis Prize awards cycle to earlier in the year. We aim to open the portal to our Letter of Interest application in the Spring instead of the late Summer, as we did during our first year."
They also encourage field members to fill out a short survey on how they can best be of service to the field.
