Each year the board selects a few people to act as judges for the year. Each judge attends each play. At the end of the year, the judges select a best supporting actor and actress to receive the Pup Award. The judges also select a best actor and actress to receive the Hector Award.
At each performance, the people can vote for their favorite actor or actress. The results are accumulated, and the person with eh most votes is given the People's Choice Award. In addition, an award is given to the person who receives the most votes throughout the year.
Each year the board may select a person who has provided outstanding service to Hawkeye Theatre. The service may come in any format; from volunteer work for shows, to writing grand to help fund our community theatre, and much more! It is our way of thinking those who make Hawkeye Theatre possible.
Each year the board members award scholarships to students who have participated either on or off the stage in our productions. They also must be interested in pursuing an education in the performing arts. The scholarship committee reviews all submitted applications and presents their findings to the board for a vote.
