Music festival announces bursaries for Grade 12 entrants

The Estevan and District Music Festival has announced it is providing bursaries to Grade 12s who entered the festival this year. 

The music festival had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which hit the province just before the festival began. This did not change the generosity of our music festival supporters.

The Grade 12 students did not get an opportunity to perform or compete and showcase their dedication and talents.

Due to community support, the festival was able to provide a total of $875 worth of bursaries to Grade 12 students based on the entries that were eligible to receive awards.
