National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Awards

Recently, we wrote about our trip to the White House to witness the award 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 whose program 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.

Happy Fabulous 50th Birthday to Our First Lady, Michelle Obama

Happy Birthday Michelle Obama!

Today, Michelle Obama celebrates her 50th birthday.  Never have so many people, in our country and abroad, been so fascinated by the details revolving a milestone birthday of an American First Lady

Mrs. Obama started her birthday celebration a few weeks ago with a few extra days alone in Hawaii after spending time there with her entire family over the holidays.  She enjoyed an early birthday celebration with Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King. Talk about a birthday kick-off!

This week, the first lady shared her thoughts about what it means to turn 50 in an interview conducted by People Magazine.  In the interview she mentions her desire to age gracefully like her mother, Marian Robinson. “She does exactly what she wants to do every single day without apology.  I’m not there yet, but I look forward to that,” The First Lady says about her mother.

Whether she is doing push-ups with Ellen or the Dougie with Jimmy Fallon, we have learned that the First Lady is all about supporting her husband, being there for her kids, living a healthy lifestyle, advocating for our youth, and aging with style and grace.

We are wishing Mrs. Obama a fabulous 50th birthday and also hoping she has a blast at the dance party being hosted by her husband at the White House this Saturday (in her honor of course).  Happy Birthday, First Lady Michelle Obama!
