Young Artist Awards

Arts and Culture El Dorado's Young Artist Awards will honor the memory of four bright lights in our community who were great supporters of the arts. These awards will be presented to outstanding high school juniors and seniors in each of four categories: music, visual art, theater, and nature-inspired art of any discipline. The awards are:

  • Richard H. Bush Award for Music
  • Joey Cattone Award for Visual Art
  • Lanny Langston Award for Theater
  • Jane Van Camp Award for Nature-Inspired Art

Award criteria will be announced in spring 2021, and students will be nominated by high school teachers in El Dorado County. The families of each of our “bright lights” will participate in the selection process, and an honorarium of $500 will be presented to each student at an awards ceremony, which will be free and open to the community. The honorarium may be used for any purpose but is intended to help the student further his or her passion in the art form.

The four students that we honor with these awards represent the talent, thoughtfulness, generosity, and commitment to our community that make El Dorado County such a special place to live.
