Last week we announced this years winners for the Decathlon Awards!!

The award ceremony took place after the Improvathon Awards on thursday night. Six students from across the nation received a framed certificate as well as a letter of recommendation, signed by CYT founder Paul Russell.

What exactly is a Decathlon Award you ask?  The CYT Decathlon Award recognizes exceptional CYT students who have demonstrated a love for theater by pursuing a well-rounded education in the theater arts and who have exhibited a character that is consistent with CYT values.

Here’s a breakdown: These students have shown exceptional discipline by taking 2 Music Classes, 2 Dance Classes, 2 Drama Class, 2 Specialty Classes, 2 Other Classes, Several Camps, Shows- on the Crew, Shows- on the Cast,  as well as HYPE membership (Area and sessions) or community service/volunteer roles, and lastly, an essay.
