YoungArts could not do the work we do to identify, recognize and award outstanding students in the arts without the work, support and effort of educators. We invite educators to get involved with YoungArts and encourage their students to apply to our signature competition.

College Recruitment Initiative

Applying to the YoungArts national competition can help young artists prepare for life after high school. By selecting to participate in the YoungArts Student List Service, applicants are connected with eligible colleges, conservatories and universities, and receive information about program offerings, financial aid and scholarships. This unique opportunity allows YoungArts applicants and winners to be seen by collegiate and pre-college programs institutions across the country.

For more information, contact us at [email protected].

YoungArts provides arts educators the chance to network with their peers from around the country, observe award winners in master classes and attend performances and exhibitions. We also offer professional learning opportunities for educators in audition preparation and portfolio development.
