YoungArts identifies and nurtures emerging artists ages 15-18 (or in grades 10-12) in the visual, literary, design and performing arts. Each year, there are approximately 11,000 applications to YoungArts from 15-18 year old (or grades 10-12) artists, and from these, approximately 800 winners are selected. Winners participate in National YoungArts Week and/or Regional Programs in Miami, New York and Los Angeles, where they take Master classes with world-renowned artists and perform in the most prestigious venues in the country. In addition, Winners are offered cash awards of up to $10,000, access to significant scholarships, the opportunity to get nominated as a U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts, and a lifetime of professional support.
