Talented UM students will be competing in artistic categories for the Golden Grizzly at the first ever Entertainment Management Awards on Friday, November 30th.

Program manager Sonja Grimmsmann says the EMAs will showcase talented UM students and provide them with an opportunity to be discovered. Award categories include music, visual art and dance.

Participants auditioned in front of an EMA team, who selected finalists to perform at the main event in front of a panel of judges and a live audience. The judges will select three top performers to receive awards and a gift bag, and the winner of the People’s Choice Award also will receive a Golden Grizzly and a gift bag. In addition, the first place winner will receive $300, the second place winner will receive $200 and the third place winner will receive $100.

The EMA’s main event will kick off at 7:30 p.m. at Monks Bar, located at 225 Ryman Street. Tickets for the 18-and-older show cost $10 in advance, $15 at the door and VIP tickets cost $50. VIP ticketholders, ages 21 and older, are invited to a 6 p.m. pre-event cocktail hour and an exclusive viewing of the dance entries at the Downtown Dance Collective, located at 121 West Main St.
