OCTA’S BRAVO AWARD (formerly OKLAHOMA SPOTLIGHT AWARD) (established 2009) This award was introduced by the Board for the intent of thanking phenomenal community theatre volunteers. Member theatres can recognize any theatre volunteer who has gone ‘above and beyond’ in their volunteerism.
This certificate recognizes outstanding service as a volunteer to a Theatre that is a member of OCTA. Nomination should state why the nominee deserves to receive this award.
Nominations are submitted in writing to the OCTA Office. The Awards Committee approves the nomination application.
The Certificate is mailed to the Theatre who will make the presentation. Should an OCTA Board member live in the vicinity of the theatre, the Board member should represent OCTA in presenting the award.
There is no set number to be inducted each year.
One nomination per theatre per year.
