I recently wrote about my trip to the White House to witness the National Arts & Humanities awards presentation from First Lady Michelle Obama to the 2013 NAHYP award winners. One thing I learned in attending that event is that there are some extremely amazing afterschool programs across the nation that are doing some astounding things. I also wondered how many people may have missed their opportunity to get their students and afterschool program to be awarded in 2013?
If you missed it last year, now is your time to enter, or share with someone who should be nominated for the award. The President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts, the NationalEndowment for the Humanities, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services, is pleased to invite applications for the 2014 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Awards.
The twelve award-winning programs this year will receive $10,000 and an invitation to accept their award from the President’s Committee’s Honorary Chairman, First Lady Michelle Obama, at a ceremony at the White House.
In addition, winners will receive an award plaque, the opportunity to attend the Annual Awardee Conference in Washington, DC in the summer of 2014, and will be featured on the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award website.
After-school and out-of-school time arts and humanities programs sponsored by museums, libraries, performing arts organization, educational institutions (e.g., preschools; elementary, middle, and high schools; universities; and colleges), arts centers, community service organizations, businesses, and eligible government entities are encouraged to consider submitting an application. Programs applying for the award must meet all of the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award’s Eligibility Criteria.
Completed applications will only be accepted via the online process. The deadline for application submissions is Monday, February 10, 2014, 5:00 p.m. PST.
