"The Jimmy Awards was one of the hardest things I've ever done- and I had so much fun doing it. We had the wonderful opportunity of working on the NYU campus and work closely with all of the participants and mentors of the program. We worked really hard for a week, learned a show extremely fast, and had a blast while doing it."

- Briana Fleming, ASU Gammage Best Lead Female Award Winner, Marcos de Niza High School

"The High School Musical Theatre Awards was one of the highlights and proudest moments of my high school experience. It is such an amazing feeling and opportunity to receive recognition for our hard work and dedication that went into our musical. It also gives you a little extra push to strive to be your best when you’re given the chance to showcase and compete with schools all across Arizona."

– Lauren Anderson, 2015 ASU Gammage HSMTA Scholarship winner.
