  • U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts
    As part of the U.S. Presidential Scholars program, nominated students who are a part of Young Arts are initially selected for candidacy based upon their artistic ability. The candidates then submit a comprehensive set of application materials which are reviewed by a committee of qualified individuals. Finally semifinalists' materials are reviewed by the Commission on Presidential Scholars, which is appointed by the President of the United States using the same criteria as the committee. Four of the twenty students receiving 2014 U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts awards came right here from Florida! Congratulations to the following students for being recognized with this prestigious award:
