2012 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Awards

Type: Federal
Source: President’s Committee On The Arts And The Humanities
Program: 2012 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Awards
Eligibility: Operate as a program for children and youth outside of the school day. Preschool, after-school, weekend, and/or summer programs, however, may have a school-based component or use school space. Multi-site initiatives that meet the criteria also are eligible;
• Use one or more disciplines of the arts or the humanities as the core content of its program(s);
• Concentrate on children and youth who live in family and community circumstances that limit their opportunities—underserved children and youth are the primary participants in the program;
• Involve children and youth as active participants in the arts or humanities experience; cultural programs in which children function only as an audience are not eligible for a National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award;
• Provide participants with ongoing, regularly scheduled sessions; one-time and occasional programs will not be considered;
• Integrate arts or humanities education programs with youth development goals (e.g., enhanced leadership skills, self-confidence, and peer relations); programs that concentrate only on preparing youth for an artistic or cultural career are not eligible for a National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award;
• Have been operational since January 2008 for a minimum of five years, including 2012 [“operational” refers to the operational years of the specific nominated program(s), not the organization’s years of operation, when nominating a program or programs within an organization];
• Be a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization, unit of state or local government, or federally recognized tribal community or tribe; and
• Be in good standing if a federal grant recipient.
