Young Masters

The Texas Young Masters Program is a joint initiative between the Texas Cultural Trust and the Texas Commission on the Arts, recognizing excellence in 8th through 11th graders in dance, theatre, literary arts, media arts, film, music, and visual arts.


Since its inception in 2002, the Texas Cultural Trust has named 154 Texas Young Masters, awarding nearly $1 million to aspiring artists across the state.
