UNL seek applications for Nebraska Young Artists Awards

15 Nov 2013    

The Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln seeks applications for the 17th annual Nebraska Young Artist awards.

The awards annually recognize 11th-grade students from Nebraska who are gifted and talented in the areas of visual art, dance, music, theatre, and film and new media. These students exemplify the pinnacles of creativity in one of the fine and performing arts.

To be recognized, students must submit an application online, which includes uploading a sample of their work and a letter of recommendation from a teacher. Full instructions for the online application process are available at http://go.unl.edu/nyaa. Online applications must be submitted by Dec. 6.

The applications will be judged by Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts faculty. Winning students will be invited to a special day of recognition on April 9.

Honored students will take tours of the arts facilities, attend classes, and meet faculty and college students. Their parents will also be invited, and they will also take tours, as well as receive information on careers in the arts and college curriculum. The day will conclude with an awards ceremony at Sheldon Museum of Art.

Students selected to participate in the Nebraska Young Artist awards will also be asked to nominate the teacher who provided them with the greatest amount of mentoring and support in the development of their special talents.
