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, is now accepting applications for the 2013 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Awards.

Past Guild member recipients of the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award include: Arts Corps (Seattle, WA), the DreamYard Project (Bronx, NY), the Young People's Chorus of New York City (New York, NY), and Fleisher Art Memorial (Philadelphia, PA).

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 2013, 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 organizations; 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 4, 2013, 5:00 p.m. PST.
