SCHOLARSHIPS

Summit Performing Arts Resource Committee (SPARC) awards scholarships to graduating seniors to recognize students who contributed significantly to the performing arts at Summit High School, primarily through their participation in theater, Speech and Debate, dance, and related performing arts classes, clubs and events. 

There are two types of scholarships available:
The Mary Snieckus SPARC Scholarship was established in November 2001, in memory of parent Mary Snieckus, who was a loving proponent of and active volunteer within the performing arts programs in the district. This award is meant to recognize those students who have shown dedication, leadership and passion both on and off the stage.

Benjamin Robert Zukoff (SHS 2010) was a student of quiet strength and kindness who made significant contributions to technical theater at SHS.  Ben was dedicated to his craft, but also emerged as a leader and role model for younger participants.

This scholarship is awarded to a student who best personifies the spirit and commitment of Ben in his/her involvement with technical theater.  The recipient will have made a significant contribution to technical theater through leadership, passion and character. The Benjamin Zukoff Technical Theater Scholarship was first awarded in the Spring of 2013.
