It’s time again to recognize Orange County’s talented arts students as we announce the 2017 nominees for the Register’s annual Varsity Arts Artist of the Year awards. Visual and performing arts teachers from every high school in the county had the opportunity to nominate standout students in the fields of theater, dance, film, vocal music, instrumental music, 2D visual arts and 3D visual arts.
In this, our fourth year, a total of 407 students were submitted by 68 Orange County high schools. Once nominated, the students submitted an application that included videos of performances, samples of artwork and questions about how they developed a passion for their craft.
Following this initial nomination, a panel of arts educators will choose the top 10 students in each discipline to move on to a round of in-person interviews. Top 10s will be announced on Sundays beginning March 26. The top Artist of the Year for each discipline will be announced on April 23.
