2020 Walker's Rising Stars Winners

Since the May 11th show would not be able to take place due to the COVID-19 outbreak, it became evident that the judging and awards would have to take a different route this year. So the Pinellas Education Foundation decided to ask each finalist to submit a video for the Pinellas Education Foundation’s YouTube page. The scholarship money will be divided equally among the performing arts finalists. Each finalist will receive $1,000 from the Pinellas Education Foundation. Congratulations to all finalists!
