|German term or phrase: Förderpreis|
|This is the name given to three of the prizes awarded at an international singing competition. Two of them also carry the name of the sponsoring organization. There are additionally a first, second and third prize awarded, (which carry higher monetary awards) as well as a "special prize." So far all I've come up with is "development prize" but I don't really like the sound of it. The other usual translations of "förder" don't seem to fit here, either (support/furthering/promotion, etc)The context does not reveal any more clues about these prizes.|

|Thank you - I think this fits best here. (Don't know if there's an endowment behind it or not) Thank you all - sorry the decision took so long. |

Prize for young singers
Yet another suggestion. Though I like
"talent" (as suggested) too - short, and safe.
The French call these "prix d'encouragement" and when they write in English they call them "encouragement prizes" - which doesn't particularly appeal to anyone I would imagine.
On the other hand there are infinitely many prizes identified as "Prize for Young" (Chemists, Musicians, ..., and Singers).

(top/grand) prize, (1st, 2nd, 3rd) place
"Dr. Raphael Bundage, artistic director of the Orpheus 2001 National Music Competition for Vocalists, says that Oberlin has always done very well in the competition that is sponsored by the Middle Tennessee Choral Society, but this year's results were "remarkable."
Sophomore Elizabeth DeShong, of Fayetteville, Pennsylvania, walked away with the Grand Prize in the Student Division. And Kendall Marie Kookogey (BA, BMus '96)--in another stroke of coincidence, also from Pennsylvania--took the Grand Prize in the Young Artist Division. The Orpheus Competition was held in March at Middle Tennessee State University.
"I didn’t really expect to win first place, though I had good feelings about how I performed," says DeShong. It was only the second time she has competed, but not the first time she won a top prize. Last April, she won first place in her division in the National Association of Teachers of Singing competition"
