The award will not appear on a student's academic transcript, but successful applicants may include it in resumes and portfolios.

Students apply as juniors; the deadline this year is March 1. Dance, music and theater applicants must have participated in six semesterlong co-curricular activities, and digital media/fine arts students in four semesterlong co-curricular activities. As seniors, applicants must submit a proposal for an original final project by Oct. 15 and the completed project itself before the end of the following semester.

Operated primarily for the children of Hopkins faculty, staff, alumni and neighbors, the co-ed program is for children 5 through 13. This year, enrollment is being capped for the six sessions, and a 10 percent discount is being offered to JHU employees who send in deposits by March 1.

The directors will be swimming coach George Kennedy, men's basketball coach Bill Nelson and head baseball coach Robert Babb.

Due to construction on the JHU pool, there will be no swimming activities this year; however, the program will be using the new, air-conditioned recreation center for many activities.
