 Focus on Youth had a modest beginning. In 1986, it was held at a library near downtown Albuquerque. In 1988, the Albuquerque Museum generously offered to host the show and collaborated with APS Fine Arts on this prestigious exhibit.

Two years ago, the show was canceled due to the pandemic. Last year, it was held virtually on the museum's website. 

Focus on Youth was created to highlight and celebrate high school students’ efforts in their photography classes. Traditionally the show is juried by photography professionals in the Albuquerque area.
