Official website http://www.youngartistawards.org

The Young Artist Awards are presented yearly by the Young Artist Foundation. Started in 1979 by long-standing Hollywood Foreign Press (Golden Globes) member Maureen Dragone,[1] the awards were envisioned specifically as awards to be presented to talented young people in television and movies who might otherwise be overshadowed by their older co-stars. The secondary purpose of the awards is to garner attention to the foundation's scholarship fund for physically or financially challenged aspiring young artists, to allow them to pursue their dreams.

For the first twenty years, these awards were called the Youth In Film Awards. The name Young Artist Awards was first used at the 21st annual awards ceremony in March 2000.[2]
