Young Artists Program

For the young artist who wants to showcase their talents, the APPLAUSE Young Artists Program offers budding artists and writers the opportunity to demonstrate their individual artistic skills and experience an adjudicated art show.

These contests are juried events for literary, visual, and performing artists grades 6-12, with cash prizes for overall 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place participants in the literary and visual arts categories. Performing artists selected by our judges at the auditions will perform in our Showcase performance at the Santa Ynez Valley High School Theater.

Share your talents with the community by signing up for the APPLAUSE Young Artists Program!
