BREVARD COUNTY • SATELLITE BEACH, FLORIDA — Kamryn Palmer, a student at Satellite High School, has been named a 2018 National YoungArts Foundation Finalist in VOICE, the organization’s highest honor.
Selected from the most competitive pool of applications to date, Palmer has been recognized for her outstanding artistic achievements.
YoungArts winners gain access to one of the most comprehensive programs for emerging artists in the United States, offering financial, professional and artistic development opportunities over the course of their careers.
Palmer will receive a cash prize of up to $10,000, and opportunities to share her work with the public at renowned institutions such as the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Sotheby’s of New York and New World Center in Miami.
She will also have access to mentors such as Academy Award-winning director, producer, editor, writer and cinematographer Doug Blush, and Grammy-award winning vocalist and songwriter Lisa Fischer.
Selected through a blind adjudication process conducted by an independent panel of highly accomplished artists, the 2018 winners represent the top 10 percent of applications.
As a Finalist, Palmer will have the opportunity to participate in the 37th annual National YoungArts Week in Miami January 7–14, the organization’s signature program. She is also eligible for nomination to the White House-appointed Commission on Presidential Scholars.
