Marlborough Congratulates Two YoungArts Award Winners
Isabella F. '18, a Finalist in ballet, and Rachel C. 16, a Merit in visual arts were chosen from more than 12,000 applicants for this high honor
Congratulations to Isabella, a Finalist in ballet, and Rachel, a Merit in Visual Arts. From more than 12,000 applications—the largest number to date—819 young artists from 42 states have been selected for their outstanding work and accomplishments across the literary, visual, design and performing arts. Winners receive cash awards of up to $10,000, validation by renowned mentors, opportunities to participate in YoungArts programs, a strong professional network, and guidance in taking important steps toward achieving their goals.
Each YoungArts Winner is designated as a Finalist, Honorable Mention or Merit Winner through a blind adjudication process by an independent panel of highly accomplished artists, and some winners are awarded for excellence in multiple disciplines. 2016 Finalists have the opportunity to participate in the 35th annual National YoungArts Week in Miami from January 3 to 10, 2016, and all Winners are eligible to participate in YoungArts’ regional programs, including YoungArts Los Angeles (February 16 – 21, 2016), YoungArts Miami(March 8 – 13, 2016), and YoungArts New York (April 12 – 17, 2016), space permitting. These programs aim to foster cross-disciplinary collaboration and community while offering the guidance needed to prepare for the next stage of their careers.
Finalists are also eligible to become U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts, as YoungArts is the exclusive nominating agency for this high honor for artistically talented graduating high school seniors.
