Competition Details

  • Introduction: YoungArts identifies the most accomplished young artists in the visual, literary, and performing arts, and provides them with creative and professional development opportunities throughout their careers. All applications are judged by esteemed discipline-specific panels of artists through a rigorous blind adjudication process, and award winners are offered a lifetime of artistic support and ongoing connection with an extraordinarily robust network of peers and mentors. Finalists of the competitions are invited to National YoungArts Week, an intensive, week-long all-expense-paid program that takes place in Miami. Finalists are eligible for financial awards of up to $10,000, as well as for nomination as U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts.
  • Competition Format: The Scholastic Awards offers 10 categories of visual, literary, and performing arts: Classical Music, Dance, Design Arts, Film, Jazz, Photography, Theater, Visual Arts, Voice, and Writing
  • Prizes: There are three different recognition levels if your work is selected: Merit, Honorable Mention, and Finalist. Chosen work will be receiving cash prizes. Finalists who attend National YoungArts Week and meet the eligibility requirements are also considered for nomination to the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program.
