To be considered for this category:

  1. 1. Email us your student's name and area of nomination (stage manager, lighting designer, etc) as well as a short recommendation describing your experience working with your student.

  2. 2. In order to be nominated, student nominees must send in

    1. Relevant documentation they have of their work including set designs, lighting plots, stage manager’s books, etc.

    2. A paragraph describing their role in the production, what they learned in the process and if they plan to continue
      working in technical theater either in college and/or their career.


Please note:  We will not accept technical merit nominations unless the student provides us with support materials and paragraph.


All materials will be returned at the Metro Awards ceremony on June 10.
