Established in 1978 by long-standing Hollywood Foreign Press Association member, Maureen Dragone, the Youth in Film Association was the first organization to establish an awards ceremony specifically set to recognize and award the contributions of performers under the age of 21 in the fields of film, television, theater and music.[1][3][4]

The 10th Youth in Film Awards marked the first year the ceremony was moved from the fall to the spring (the previous 9th Youth in Film Awards ceremony taking place in December 1987). This 5 month "push-back" effectively resulted in no ceremony taking place during the 1988 calendar year, however, performances during late 1987 and 1988 were recognized at the 10th annual ceremony.
