SANTA CLARITA TO HOST WINNERS AND FINALISTS OF
THE 2019 YOUNG ARTISTS AND AUTHORS SHOWCASE

            The City of Santa Clarita and the Santa Clarita Sister Cities Program, in partnership with Sister Cities International, are honored to host the winners and finalists of the 2019 Young Artists and Authors Showcase (YAAS). The art exhibit will be on display from February 5, 2020, to February 27, 2020, in the Old Town Newhall Library. It will notably feature the essay “Similarities and Differences” by Saugus High student Katherine Denzin, which is a thoughtful piece on embracing diversity, finding common ground and using technology to bring individuals together globally.
            This exciting exhibit will commence with a reception that is open to the public on February 5, 2020, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Support arts and culture in our City by dropping in for free food, music and be inspired by young creative minds around the world!
            The 2019 YAAS theme was “Global Citizens: Resilient Communities,” with each creative piece highlighting the importance of citizen diplomacy and innovative ways an individual and community achieve peace through people-to-people interactions. 
            The Young Artists and Authors Showcase (YAAS) is Sister Cities International’s (SCI) annual contest to encourage youth around the world to express SCI’s mission through art, literature and photography. SCI’s mission is to promote peace through mutual respect, understanding and cooperation through programs, exchanges, community and worldwide engagement – one individual, one community at a time.
