“We are so proud of our second annual YEA Awards. We know how hard it is to work in the entertainment industry and to maintain a successful career,” shares Alitzah Wiener President of The Young Entertainer Awards, founder of the Young Entertainer Foundation. “So often we celebrate the teens, adults at their peek, but we want to celebrate the kids just starting out, those in full bloom and encourage them as they move forward and honor their hard work and dedication thus far. This marked another great year for us and we are excited to see these kids continue to excel and meet new talent breaking into the industry next year.”
