Beginning in 2014, The Marge Award has honored a Bart’s Bards member who truly embraces the mission of the Bards. The recipient of the award should be someone who has gone above and beyond to create a community of love and belonging, promoting Christian fellowship through the performing arts, and selflessly using their gifts to the fullest to help everyone around them prepare to bring our productions to the stage, for the inspiration and enjoyment of all. This is the highest honor bestowed upon a member of the Bart’s Bards family.
Nominations are submitted by active Bards members and collected annually during tech week of the Summer musical production. After nominations are reviewed and a winner selected by the Board of Directors, the winner is announced at the Summer musical’s cast party. The winner’s name is also displayed on a plaque in the Krumpe Activity Center.
