Three DA Theatre Students Win 2023 YoungArts Awards

Every year thousands of performing, visual and literary artists age 15-18 apply to YoungArts national competition. Winners are chosen for their caliber of artistic achievement by esteemed discipline-specific panels of artists through a rigorous blind adjudication process.

They are awarded in three categories: Finalist, Honorable Mention and Merit. Honorable Mention winners receive a monetary award of $250. Merit winners receive a monetary award of $100.

DA had two Honorable Mentions: Camille Faustino (Visual Arts), and Trinity Quinto (Pop Vocal Performance) and six Merit Winners; Maurice Chakour (Jazz/Guitar), Giovanni Martinez (Jazz/Trumpet), Ryan James (Film), Jessie Doherty (Theatre), Samantha Nelson (Theatre), and Gianna Yaccino (Modern-Contemporary).

The DA Theatre Boosters are very proud of Trinity, Jessie and Samantha!
