Each outstanding student receives a cash award of $500, made possible by gifts from the Jones family. The general public is invited to view the visual arts exhibit and to attend the music concert on the day of the awards ceremony.
The Cecil Wallace Foundation Award in Visual Arts, made possible with a gift from Fordham’s daughter, Eleanor Fordham Jones, and her family, was created to remember Mr. Fordham’s love of visual beauty.
