The Penguin Project has been honored with the 2017 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award!
The Penguin Project was recognized for its effectiveness in promoting learning and life skills in young people by engaging them through creative programs.
First presented in 1998, the 2017 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Awards were presented through a partnership between the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), in cooperation with the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies (NASAA).
The National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award is the nation’s highest honor for these programs.
The awardees — chosen from a pool of 350 nominations and 50 finalists — were recognized for improving academic achievement, literacy and language abilities, communication and performance skills, and cultural awareness.
We are so proud of all our Artists, Mentors, Producers, Parents and everyone else who helped us get this far!
