Bettie Delaplaine was a lifelong supporter of the arts in Frederick County, Maryland. Her strong belief in the importance of the arts in our community, and the importance of supporting young emerging artists, inspired the Delaplaine Arts Center to create the Elizabeth Barker Delaplaine Award for Young Artists in her honor. The award program is an annual event run in March, nationally recognized as Youth Art Month.
Prize money for the Bettie Award is sponsored in part by a generous gift from the Frederick County Art Association.
