2023 Information for Young Artists

The Young Artist Showcase is a program that recognizes local public school and homeschool students in 6th through 12th grade who excel in the areas of art, music, writing, dance, and drama. Professional judges are enlisted to judge the entries in each discipline, and trophies and ribbons are awarded to the winners at each school’s end of the year awards program along with the sports and academic awards that are traditionally given by the schools. This program fills a gap in local awards programs, showing students that they can be rewarded for excellence in the arts and creates an incentive for students to achieve excellence.

Young artists can submit artwork for evaluation. Check back for more details on entry information.  

The musical performances will be held on Monday, January 23, 2023. This is a non-competitive performance opportunity for students. Students have the opportunity to perform a solo or ensemble piece for a panel of highly-qualified and respected judges. The judges use a modified ISSMA rubric to provide feedback to the young artists on technique, musicianship, and accuracy while providing comments for improvement and growth. Local music teachers can help find fitting music for young musicians.

Entries are now closed for the 2023 Music Showcase.



Students can submit a creative writing essay for evaluation. Entries are judged within each school. Click the link below to find details about submitting a entry.

Area judges attend regularly scheduled middle and high school drama performances to evaluate young thespians.
