National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award - Letter
According to John Abodeely, Deputy Director of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, the 2017 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award Finalists were chosen from a pool of 342 applications from 46 states, Washington D.C., and two U.S. territories. The Central Music Academy (CMA) was selected for its work providing free private music lessons to financially disadvantaged children, and the organization’s selection as one of the 50 Finalists “distinguishes it as one of the top arts- and humanities-based programs in the country.”
This is a huge honor! The 12 winners (choosen at the end of June) will travel to Washington DC to accept the $10,000 award this fall!
