The Judy Anderson Founders Award endowment was established by multiple supporters of PlatteForum to fund an annual award in honor of PlatteForum founder, Judy Anderson. The award will stand as recognition of Judy’s vision, boundless energy, determination, artistic integrity, creativity and grit in the creation, development and achievements of PlatteForum. A $1,000 cash award will be presented annually to an artist selected by a committee.
