WINNERS COME BY THE DOZEN AT 30th ANNUAL YOUNG ARTIST AWARDS

HOLLYWOOD, Cal. — It was a day of celebration for the dozens of winners Sunday when Hollywood’s child and teen stars gathered for their own annual award show.  But for the organizers of the non-profit organization it was also a day of accomplishment.

It was a milestone – 30 years of recognizing those young people who have been passed over by the Oscars, the Globes, the Emmy’s and the Independent Spirit Awards among others. And it was to honor the awards founder, Maureen Dragone, who continues as its president.

For the occasion, many former nominees and winners showed up as did Kenny Ortega, director of High School Musical and former child star Cory Feldman (Stand By Me) both of whom received special awards.   Street Magic, the Russian Federation’s top singing sensation featuring soloist Vlad Krutskikh, also was on hand to mark the event.  [more]
