The Fort Dodge Area Symphony has had a very successful Young Artists program since 1966. The main contributing factor to the great response of students to the program is that all who win the auditions perform with the orchestra. For most other symphonies, the only student who actually performs with the orchestra is the one who finishes first. As of the 2013-14 season, there have been 187 Young Artist soloists with the Fort Dodge Area Symphony.
The winners of the 2013-14 auditions which were held on January 18, 2014 were:
Bernat, Iowa City

The following students received Honorable Mention:
Most, Des Moines
The young artist winners receive music scholarships established by a program set up by the Eva Paterson Estate.
