4th Annual
Frisco AMP Awards
Saturday, April 13
Liberty High School

Our intent in creating the AMP Awards is to celebrate the incredible efforts of our students. On behalf of the children, our community, and our Board of Directors, we would like to invite you to be a part of our 4th Annual AMP Awards. These performers work long hours after school and on weekends, and this is to celebrate their dedication and commitment to excellence on and off the stage.

Our evening events will be divided into two Shows, the K-4th Grades Awards Show (honoring students in grades K-4) and the 5th-12th Grades Awards Show (honoring students in grades 5-12). All grades are welcome at the after party. We will have a live DJ and food will be available with purchase of dinner ticket. Catering will be provided by Piada.

The Awards Ceremony

The 4th Annual Awards Ceremony will take place by division in two Shows. Each Show will recognize that division’s Outstanding and Runner Up (in most categories) Award Recipients in dozens of categories, culminating in “Outstanding Actor and Actress” and the coveted “NTPA Leadership Award.” The trophies will be awarded by the NTPA Directors, providing an exciting on-stage photo opportunity for each of our recipients (a photographer will be making photos freely available to all participants). Each act also features special performances from the year past and shows about to hit the stage by our students. There will also be short update messages from NTPA Management and Board members during most sessions, as well as exciting announcements about upcoming shows and “year in review” videos, as well as short recognition moments for select volunteers and supporters.

Live Performances During the Show

Each AMP Awards features exciting live acts from the prior year and generally those about to hit the stage. These Acts are selected in advance by the theatre’s Managing Director. Students participating in the live act performances must purchase a ticket to perform.

What to Eat

Dinner will be provided by Piada at the After Party! Make sure to purchase a dinner ticket for each member of your family in order to receive a meal at the event.

AMP Awards Selection Process

The Academy of Directors of the North Texas Performing Arts determines the categories and will nominate approximately 20 Performers pre category. The public will vote to assist in narrowing to the finalists. This “popular vote ballot” entitles participants to make a recommendation to the AMP Director’s selection process for our finalists from this list of nominations.

A convention of the AMP Committee of Directors will be called after the final votes are taken and no less than two weeks before the AMP Awards Ceremony. The convention will consist of a minimum of three Directors which may include the Managing Director and agreed to by the Academy of Directors. The AMP Directors will complete an independent balloting. Directors vote on the quality of the performer’s work, their attitude and work ethic, and their behavior both on-stage and off. When there are four or fewer nominees in a category, only a Finalist winner will be designated.

A Trophy is issued to a Finalist and a Runner Up, and all Finalists are given ribbon/medal commemorating their recognition. A performer cannot be awarded more than one trophy in a Finalist or Runner Up position, though a performer can be recognized in the “Outstanding Leadership” category as well as another category.

The ultimate decision of the Finalists, and Outstanding and Runner-Up Award Recipients is at the complete and full discretion of the AMP Academy.
