PYP alum, Sara Prendergast (CAPA/11th Grade), has received a 2014 National YoungArts Foundation Award in the category of Writing (Play or Script for Film or Video) for her play, Depilatory, which was first produced by Young Playwrights as part of our 2013 New Voices Workshop Productions in collaboration with Temple University.
“From approximately 11,000 applications received, YoungArts has awarded 687 young artists across 46 states. These talented young artists are some of the nation’s best in the Literary, Performing, Visual and Design Arts.” Sara won a Merit-level award which means she receives a Certificate of Achievement, a Recommendation letter for college, and an engraved award for her high school to display.
