Cab senior Chris Millison recently learned he was a finalist in the 2010 YoungARTS program, sponsored by the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts. His position has earned him an all-expenses paid trip to Miami, Florida in January for a week of master classes, showcase performances, exhibitions, enrichment programs, and final adjudications. Only 150 finalists were selected from an initial applicant pool of nearly 6,000, so Chris' achievement is pretty impressive!
The youngARTS Finalists are the only students eligible to receive the White House designation of Presidential Scholars in the Arts. At the conclusion of youngARTS Week panelists nominate 60 youngARTS Finalists and 20 are ultimately selected as Presidential Scholars in the Arts. Finalists also qualify for cash awards ranging from $1,000-10,000.
