National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award Webinar January 16

Libraries and Museums Encouraged to Apply

Does your museum or library have an outstanding afterschool or out-of-school program that is transforming the lives of young people? The National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award recognizes twelve such programs each year with $10,000 and an award ceremony at the White House. IMLS is hosting a webinar for museums and libraries that are interested in submitting applications or would like to learn more on Thursday, January 16th from 2-3 p.m. EST.

To register for the webinar, go to: https://www4.gotomeeting.com/register/230659839

The National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award is a signature initiative of the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Winning programs exemplify how arts and humanities programs outside of the school day enrich the lives of young people by teaching new skills, nurturing creativity, and building self-confidence.

The deadline for applications is Monday, February 10, 2014. For more information, see www.nahyp.org.
