The tenth annual Jimmy Awards, honoring high school musical theatre performers from around the country, will be streamed live on Facebook June 25 through a partnership with Dear Evan Hansen and Wells Fargo.

While clips from the National High School Musical Theatre Awards (as they're formally known) ceremony—including medleys of students reprising roles that earned them acclaim in their communities and finalists performing solos—traditionally make their way online, this will mark the first year the entire ceremony will be streamed live.

“We’re so thrilled to invite fans from all over the world to watch as Broadway’s next generation dazzles and inspires everyone at The Jimmy Awards,” said Broadway League President Charlotte St. Martin. “We thank Dear Evan Hansen and Wells Fargo for their help with this livestream event. If you sang along to Glee, you’re going to love this show!”

Tony Award winner Laura Benanti will host this year's ceremony, which will feature a record 80 students from 40 regional programs competing for awards and college scholarships.
