Young Artists and Authors Chosen to Represent Fort Worth
For decades, Sister Cities International has leveraged the power that art has to transform societies and transcend cultural boundaries through the Young Artists and Authors Showcase, or YAAS. The Showcase has given youth worldwide the opportunity to express their vision for a more unified, peaceful world through original art and literature.
Fort Worth Sister Cities International held the local showcase to choose student pieces to be submitted to the worldwide competition.
We want to give a special thanks to our Young Artists and Authors Chair Rachel Malone and her committee for recruiting judges and securing prize money.
Congratulations to all the artists and authors who were selected and entered into the international competition.
