The annual Emerging Young Artist Scholarship Award was presented to Greenwich High School senior, Anna Black. In 2010 the Palace Theatre established the Emerging Young Artist Scholarship Award to inspire young artists in our community – the future of the performing arts. The $2,000 cash award helps to defray the costs of continuing the student’s education in his or her chosen art, and in addition, instills confidence and a sense of accomplishment.
