Music Awards

Every spring, the HCFS offers monetary awards for folk music and speech categories to provincial music festivals in Nova Scotia. Currently, music festivals occur in Annapolis Valley, Lunenburg County, New Glasgow, Queens County, Truro, and the Kiwanis Festivals in Halifax and Sydney.

In 2024, the HCFS gave $350 to five festivals where students participated in folk classes using materials from the Creighton collection. The winning students were James Gerhardt, Sophie MacDougall, Victoria McDougall, Victoria Robertson, Ryleigh Tanner, Jaida Weaver, and Calliana Zwicker. With our new book of songs from the Creighton collection expected in October 2024, we hope to give more awards next year.
