Mayor Roach, who is an avid arts supporter, gives out the awards each year. The Mayor’s Arts Awards offers the public the opportunity to recognize the individuals, groups, and organizations of Southwest Louisiana that have invested countless hours and continuous efforts to make our region a gravitational center for tourism, new businesses, and artists through the development of local arts and culture.
Those who wish to nominate an organization, individual, or group should send a letter providing the nominator’s name and full contact information along with the name of the nominee, a statement of why that person/group/organization is being nominated, and the contact information for the nominee. Nominations are accepted year-round and can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
