Young Artist Showcase (YAS) is a program sponsored by the Batesville Area Arts Council that recognizes students who excel in six categories of “The Arts”: music, drama, art, writing, film, and dance. Each YAS winner is honored with a blue ribbon or trophy at his or her schools’ end-of-year program along with the sports and academic awards that are traditionally given by the school. Young Artist Showcase is divided into two divisions: Junior (grades 6-8) and Senior (grades 9-12). The Showcase is also open to students who live outside the area but whose parents are members of BAAC. A student may enter and win an award in each of the five YAS areas (art, music, dance, drama, film, and writing). However, a student may earn only one award in each area per year. For example, if a student has scores from two different contests in music, or scores from two different drama productions, only the higher score will be used to determine the award.
