• The Verge Awards are partner-supported, local, statewide and nationwide public high school contests in singing, dance, filmmaking, fashion design, app development and more, that award prizes and scholarships to winning students, and funding to their schools for STEAM education!

  • We're hosting dozens of contests in five categories (at full scale):

  • And public voting means schools and entire communities will rally around their creative and technical teens, just as they do their athletes. So picture the excitement of Friday Night High School Football – but for singers, dancers, fashion designers, filmmakers, video game designers, comedy acts and more!

    And our partners (and your employees!) can play a visible role in the excitement in communities everywhere!

  • We're lauching in CT November 22, 2019 in partnership with Live Nation CT and iHeartMedia, and will scale nationwide from there!

    Here's how all of our contests will work:

    Contests start with FREE local, online preliminaries

    All teens, regardless of income or geography, can participate. Students simply upload their entries to their local online preliminaries.

    Schools and entire communities rally and vote

    Judges and the voting public determine who win prizes and advance to live state championships.

    Social media explodes with viral sharing!

    Every entry receives its own unique URL that can easily be shared via social media.

    Finalists perform/present at the LIVE statewide championships!

    Every state in the nation has its own live state championship and day-long celebration, crowning the state champs who will advance to regional and national championships!
