FORT WAYNE – Not only was Carroll High School senior Paige Robertson selected as one of only 15 young artists living with disabilities in the nation to have their artwork showcased through the VSA Emerging Young Artists Program, she also has the distinction of being the youngest of the group.

Robertson was chosen among hundreds of entries to receive a $2,000 award, an all-expense paid trip to professional development workshops in Washington, D.C. and to have one of her photos included in a curated exhibition that will tour around the United States for one year.
VSA and the Volkswagen Group of America have teamed up since 2002 to recognize young artists living with disabilities who are between the ages of 16 to 25.
