The Arcadia Performing Arts Foundation's 6th Annual Arts Excellence Prize is awarded to graduating Arcadia High School seniors who have demonstrated excellence, scholarship, and leadership in the performing arts. In 2017, Arts Benefactor donor Lily Liu's contribution increased prizes to $1,000 each as part of her donor benefits. In 2018, a fifth prize was added specifically for writing excellence through a grant from the Katy Hsieh Foundation. Today, a total of five $1,000 prizes each are awarded during Senior Awards Night. Minimum GPA is 3.0 and Universal Application is required.
