Hello teenage art lovers of the (Seattle-area) world! The time has come to once again flex your mighty muscles and vote for your favorite art things and organizations in THE TEENY AWARDS!

What are the Teeny Awards?

The Teeny Awards are like a Teen Choice Awards for local arts. They are given out each year by the TeenTix Steering Committee based on YOUR votes. You! TeenTix member! Reading this! YOUUUUUU!!!!

In the past, we’ve surprised our awardees with singing telegrams, cheer squads, and magical tubes of wonder. That’s been fun, but, since 2013 marks the fifth anniversary of the Teeny Awards, we wanted to do something special. So, we’re throwing a huge party for our members, the community, and, of course, our wonderful partners who make all of this possible! Won’t you please join us?
