In 2014, we were able to offer our first-place winner $500, second-place winner $250, and third-place winner $100. In 2015, donations enabled us to increase prizes amounts to $1,000 for our first-place winner, $500 for our second-place winner, and $250 for our third-place winner. With your help, we’d love to increase prize levels again this year.
Circus Star would not be possible without support from our amazing sponsors! There are many ways to get involved as a sponsor. Visit the Circus Star USA site to check out all the sponsorship options.
