The 2014 Young Performers Scholarship Winners

One of the best parts of working with the Carmel Arts Council is giving our high school students a chance to show off their talents. Each year the CAC hosts its Young Performers Showcase, in which Carmel seniors compete in one of four scholarship competitions: Literary ArtsPerforming ArtsVisual Arts and Piano and Instrumental Arts.

This year with the help of our generous donors, the Council distributed $20,000 in scholarship money to the first and second place finishers across five areas of concentration in our four competitions.
