Berkley-Pendell Piano Scholarship Competition
Berkley-Pendell Piano Scholarship Competition

Prizes & Awards

One or more prizes may be awarded in each division category.  However, if there is no deserving contestant, the judges reserve the right to withhold the first (second, or third) place awards in any Division.  Although ties will rarely be given, Honorable Mentions (without monetary awards) may be designated by the judges, and will receive a special ribbon.  All performers in the competition will receive a certificate of participation.



All competition winners will appear in the Winner's Celebratory Concert.
