Founded in 1981, YoungArts identifies exceptional young artists, amplifies their potential, and invests in their lifelong creative freedom. YoungArts provides space, funding, mentorship, professional development and community throughout artists’ careers. Entrance into this prestigious organization starts with a highly competitive application for talented artists ages 15–18, or grades 10–12, in the United States that is judged by esteemed discipline-specific panels of artists through a rigorous blind adjudication process.
Competition finalists attend National YoungArts Week to collaborate with peers and develop their crafts with internationally recognized leaders in their fields. Audiences are invited to meet these finalists in five nights of performances, writers’ readings and an exhibition. Learn more at youngarts.org.
