Heinatz Award

The Tempe Heinatz  Award was established for Junior Club members in 1974 and named in 1977 for the club’s Distinguished Service member, Tempe Heinatz, whose devotion to junior musicians spanned the years.  Prior to 2007, winners received scholarships to summer music camps.  In 2007, eligibility rules changed requiring achievement of All State at the State Festival and auditioning for judges from the club.  The award is supported by the club budget and individual contributions.
