To develop young South Florida artists by creating a new regional competition as part of the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts' youngARTS program

Though it is a Miami-based organization, the National Foundation for Advancement of the Arts has focused its programs on a national audience. This grant will create a regional program that will train and support local artists in their senior year of high school, a critical juncture. YoungArts/Miami will provide promising local artists with master classes taught by renowned artists, along with financial support and networking opportunities. Top-scoring applicants will receive cash awards at a local awards ceremony. Their teachers will be honored, as will the recipients’ schools. Also, all applicants – no matter their score – will receive detailed feedback on audition materials. The foundation hopes to use this program as a national model for other major cities.
