Each year we invite early applicants for the upcoming graduating class* to attend the State Finals showcase for FREE. In addition to attending the showcase, Fast Forwards may be invited to workshops including Q&As with participants, college applications, and more! The Fast Forward experience will introduce you to the DYW program and the evaluation process as well as provide resources to improve your overall experience. 

*the ‘upcoming graduating class’ indicates your graduation year. For example, the above photo states the State Finals program is for the Class of 2020. The ‘upcoming graduating class’, aka Fast Forwards, were from the Class of 2021!

The Class of 2024 is invited to participate in this year’s State Finals program as Fast Forwards on DATE TBA, 2022. Contact our Participant Coordinator,, with questions or concerns.
