This year we are honored to recognize 16 winners for their accomplishments and dedication to the arts in Lincoln. We are pleased to feature Ted Kooser, the 13th Poet Laureate of the United States, who has dedicated an unpublished poem for this year’s award winners. Returning as our emcee is DeWayne Taylor – teaching artist, beat boxer and host of “Afternoons with D-Wayne” on KFRX radio.

It’s easy to make individual reservations, become a Table Sponsor and to underwrite “Gift Reservations,” making it possible for even more Lincolnites to be part of this annual tradition.

If you choose to sponsor a table, but are unable to fill all ten seats, let us help! Simply write “Gift” on the lines for your guest reservations and we will complete the seating.

Please secure your reservations by April 15th. For additional information or to ask questions, please contact Lori McAlister 402-434-2787 or
