Went to CLJ's award night at her middle school. They call the awards "The Pony's", named after the school mascot, which is a mustang. They are general awards for the performance arts: media, drama, journalism, and band. The kids all dress up fancy (ball gowns and tuxedos for many kids), and the multi-purpose room gets decorated all glittery. They even have a white limo to drive the girls from the lower parking lot to the upper lot so they can make an entrance.
CLJ got an award for drama participation, and was nominated for an award in two categories: best video and dance. She and two friends were presenters for two awards in the media category ("and the Pony goes to...."). I was very proud of her.
