The Rockford Public Schools Fine Arts Hall of Fame celebrates as many as five individuals or groups each year. The awards ceremony began in 2016 as a way to celebrate the past and current successes of the fine arts in Rockford Public Schools. Nominations are accepted from the community, and a panel of voters makes the final selections based on submitted information.
