Fine Arts Hall of Fame

The Rockford Public Schools Fine Arts Hall of Fame is a districtwide event that highlights 4-5 individuals or groups per year.

This awards ceremony began in 2016 as a way to celebrate the past and current successes of the fine arts in RPS 205. Nominations are accepted from the community, and a panel of voters makes the final selections based on the information in the submissions.

Who can be nominated?

The nominating criteria are that the individual/group be a former Rockford Public Schools student(s) who went on to achieve tremendous success in his/her arts field, or an educator or advocate who has made a valuable impact on the arts. The nominations are not limited to individuals as the committee will also accept productions or ensembles that performed or demonstrated their skills as a group. Nominations that are not chosen for this year will be reconsidered in subsequent years. Nominators are encouraged to keep nominating their choices every year.
