The 2023 Delia Mae Jones Award Honoree Announcement will be coming soon!

The Delia Mae Jones Theatre Award was created by her daughter Evelyn Jones Reed to honor Delia Mae Jones and to recognize and celebrate the quality of faith, courage, selflessness, and community service Delia possessed.


The Delia Mae Jones Theatre Awards inspires excellence by honoring the underrecognized individual who demonstrate their significant accomplishments through tremendous impact on the lives of others, who have exhibited exceptional dedication, courage to overcome a difficult situation, and selflessness in their service to the community. The Delia Mae Jones Award reflects the spirit of Delia Mae Jones, possessing strength in the face of adversity and courage in the face of peril. The Award is inspired by the life that Delia lived. Her courage and faith to face her battle with cancer. The Delia Mae Jones Award winners strive to carry on Delia’s legacy in their own lives.
