The Leinster School of Music & Drama Excellence Awards was first introduced in 2004 by Karen Casey to present a national competition for students taking LSMD graded examinations in both Music and Drama. Examiners nominate students who show excellence performing music or drama pieces. These students will then be invited to take part in the call backs.
The overall prize for Music will include a cheque for €300 and the LSMD Perpetual Silver Cup.
The overall prize for Drama will include a cheque for €300 and the LSMD Perpetual Silver Cup.
Finalists/Runners Up candidates will receive a cheque for €100 each and a silver medal.

Teachers will be informed of any nominations of their students in a letter that will be included with student results. The letter will include all of the information needed for submission of entries.
Prize winners and finalists will be listed on the LSMD news webpage and are invited to perform at the All Ireland Excellence Awards Prize Winners Concert held at Griffith College Dublin each year.
