On Wednesday, January 25, 2017, magician Jason Fun and his wife Marcela were invited to a special magician's banquet in Las Vegas, Nevada. At that banquet, they were awarded for the second year in a row, the Discover Magic Golden Key of Excellence for their efforts in the establishment of their magic school, Utah Valley Magic Academy, and for their contributions to the Discover Magic educational curriculum for kids! The award was presented by the producer of Magic Magazine and Magic Live!, Stan Allen. Other celebrity magicians that were present include Mac King, Johnny Thompson, Fielding West, and Mat Franco, winner of America's Got Talent!
"We are so honored and excited to receive this award for the second year in a row!" said Jason. "We really believe in the Discover Magic educational curriculum and have seen it do wonders for kids in our magic school. Parents love the impact that our magic classes have on their kids. The real magic is seeing the kids implement the 8 Traits of a True Magician not only when they perform magic, but in their everyday lives."
The 8 Traits of a True Magician include important social skills such as being Respectful, Prepared, Enthusiastic, and Confident. Kids come and take magic classes at Utah Valley Magic Academy. While the kids come to learn magic, the real focus is on preparing these kids with how to interact with others. "The skills they obtain while learning and performing magic is something that they will use throughout their entire lives" said Jason.
Utah Valley Magic Academy is a traveling magic school. Not bound to a specific location, Jason can take his award winning magic classes anywhere there is a demand for it.
