Finalists will also have the chance to perform throughout the year in events such as the Shakespeare Festival St. Louis, Webster Art & Air Festival, National Dance Week and the Muny. Students will also be eligible for “The Audience Choice Award,” which will be returning this year for the crowd to award their favorite act a $1,000 cash prize.

The Fox Performing Arts Charitable Foundation, which puts together the event, has provided the opportunity for talented St. Louis teens to compete for college scholarships, special awards, prizes and public appearance opportunities. The Foundation wishes to cultivate rich talent amongst the emerging talent in the St. Louis Metropolitan area.
