The Young Artist Awards recognize excellence in the arts.
Grade 11 and 12 students who live in or attend school in Mississippi Mills are eligible to apply for the awards. There is a $100.00 prize associated with each award. Students can apply in one or more of the following categories: art, dance, music, drama and writing.
The application process is different than that of many high school awards. Students choose to apply, gather references, and prepare an online presentation on “Who they are, and what the arts mean to them.” The format of the presentation is very open, and creativity is encouraged. Applicants also submit an online portfolio of the work they do as an artist.
Applications are due by May 31. Award winners will be announced at the end of the school year, in June. The Young Awards Foundation invites the communities of Mississippi Mills to join us as we celebrate the accomplishments of our young people. Let our Young Artists know how proud we are of them!
