Objectives of VAYA

Our Mission is

  • to support and foster performing and literary arts education through bursaries and scholarships
  • to give participants the benefit of expert criticism from unbiased adjudicators
  • to help participants acquire self-confidence by performing before an audience
  • to provide performance and education opportunities for participants both at the festival and in the community throughout the year

We do our best not to turn anyone away and try to find sponsorship for those individuals and schools needing help in order to attend.

Board of Directors:

Bob Rompre, President; Richard Haack, Secretary/Treasurer; Heilwig von Koenigsloew, Elaine Lindbjerg and Sandi Siemens, Directors.
