"It's thrilling to see more students than ever participating in this year's Jimmy Awards, with a record 43 regions sending nominees to New York City representing over 100,000 kids from around the country who compete to perform on a Broadway stage and win one of 20 scholarships. With so many young people creating musical theatre, it reflects how Broadway's popularity continues to grow and become part of our culture," said Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League. "Jimmy Award nominees not only have the potential to earn significant scholarships, they have the opportunity to advance their careers. It really is one of the most exciting and inspiring nights of the season."
