2012 US Presidential Scholar in the Arts
Meet the 2012 U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts!!
Congratulations to the twenty (20) 2012 YoungArts National Winners who have been chosen for this year’s U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts awards. This is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon an artistically talented high school senior and is presented on behalf of the President of the United States.
These talented young artists have been selected by a Commission appointed by the White House, based on their academic, civic and artistic achievement.
We are so proud of their hard work and talent, and we look forward to watching them achieve their successful careers in the arts.
YoungArts serves as the exclusive nominating agency for U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts. Participants in the YoungArts program are the only students eligible to receive the designation of Presidential Scholars in the Arts (PSA), based on their artistic and academic achievements. In addition to this once in a lifetime honor, the visual artists, photographers and writers present their work in an exhibition at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the performing artists perform at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts; truly life changing experiences for any young artist.
These performance opportunities are made possible by the generous contributions of our valued supporters. No donation is too big or small to provide talented artists a platform to showcase their work. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
