The HAL Awards And HAL Scholarship Program

The Heroes And Legends (HAL) Scholarship Foundation was created by celebrated songwriter and Motown Alumna, Ms. Janie Bradford,  to aid “at risk” youth and to publicly recognize others who share her vision.

The primary purpose of HAL is twofold:

First, to help talented young people in the community realize their lofty -but- attainable dreams of shaping careers for themselves in one of the many performing arts.  We do this by providing much needed scholarship funds.

Secondly, HAL spotlights positive role models from many diverse backgrounds, including leaders in the fields of music, theatre, motion pictures and business each year at the Annual HAL Awards and Scholarship Dinner.
