Freedman (2006), Peter Mills (2007), Adam Gwon (2008), and Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich (2009). The selection panel is comprised of: Foundation Trustee Mitchell S. Bernard; lyricist, writer and composer Sheldon Harnick; Music Director David Loud; Actress Rebecca Luker; actor, lyricist and composer Lin-Manuel Miranda; Playwright/producer Tim Pinckney; Theatre producer Arthur Whitelaw.
