The Jessie Awards are juried by a group of diverse volunteers from the community who are selected by and report to the Jessie Review Committee (JRC). Jurors are responsible to attend every show in their assigned category and meet throughout the year to check in with the JRC. At the end of the season (April/May), jurors meet to vote by secret ballot which is then tabulated by an accounting firm. 

2022 Update:

It has been a difficult few years for everyone, and the performing arts have faced unique challenges during this time. One of the biggest challenges faced by the Jessies has been the engagement and involvement of the theatre community on our juries, committees, and Board of Directors. To that end, the Board of Directors has made the difficult decision for the Jessie Awards to go on hiatus and pause all jurying as of May 1, 2022.

Our Board is comprised of a team of passionate volunteers who meet monthly October - July.
