Description

Thatcher won an Honorable Mention award in the category of Classical Music as a classical guitarist in the 2019 National YoungArts Foundation Competition.

YoungArts is considered to be the most prestigious arts competition for high school students in the country. Usually, 7,000 to 10,000 people apply to the competition each year.

From there, only 8% of the applicants receive awards (notable YoungArts winners from previous years include Viola Davis, Josh Groban, and Timothée Chalamet).

If you win an Honorable Mention award, your submission ranks in the top 4% of all of the applicants in all of the various fields from the entire country in that year.
