Every year, YoungArts selects approximately 800 young artists in ten different disciplines to participate in National YoungArts Week and/or Regional Programs in Miami, New York or Los Angeles, where—for one intense week—they take Master classes with world-renowned artists, perform and exhibit in the most prestigious venues in the country, and win cash awards of up to $10,000. YoungArts Winners in their senior year of high school also automatically become eligible for nomination as U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts, the nation's highest honor for young artists.
