The Triangle Rising Stars Best Actress and Best Actor receive $1,000 academic scholarships and are invited to represent the Triangle in an all-expense paid trip to the NHSMTA program in New York City. In New York, they are immersed in a week of professional coaching from Broadway directors, actors, actresses, vocal coaches, and choreographers. The National Awards program takes place at Nederlander's Minskoff Theatre, home theatre for Disney's The Lion King. In total, 30 regional competitions send finalists to New York representing the best High School musical theater students from 1,000 high schools nationwide that participate.
