The Cape Coral Council for Arts and Humanities Inc. celebrated the 21st year of "Stars of Tomorrow Scholarship program." This is a competition for elementary, middle, high and first year college students in the performing arts and was held at the Cape Coral. Cultural Park Theatre. The winners performed at a Command Performance and were presented their Certificates of Award. All performances were held at the Cape Coral Cultural Park Theatre.

This program is held for the purpose of supporting youth who are striving for a positive goal in life by dedication to perfecting their God-given talents to the best of their ability. In this difficult time of our history, it is our aim to assist as many youths as possible and help them as part of their education to achieve self esteem in this avenue of the Cultural Arts.
The Arts Council and President Richard Knapik thank the many persons who supported our youth by attending these outstanding performances and helped put on the program. The talent in Southwest Florida continues to amaze us and those who judged this competition. The judges are chosen for their experience in the Performing Arts. They were Betty Dentzau, Frank Martin, Dan Shortman, Anita Tate and Sharon Traylor.
We had 68 talents participate and first and second awards presented in all categories and in all age groups. It is my privilege to have been part of this program as a charter member of the Arts Council since 1990.
"With youth such as these evident today, we believe there is indeed hope in the future after all."
We believe "Culture is the fabric of life."
