The President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Humanities, invites you to nominate outstanding arts and humanities youth programs in your community for a 2006 Coming Up Taller award. Each year Coming Up Taller awards recognize and reward excellence in after-school and out-of-school arts and humanities programs for underserved children and youth. Award recipients receive $10,000 each, an individualized plaque, and an invitation to attend the annual Coming Up Taller Leadership Enhancement Conference.
We encourage programs initiated by libraries, museums, community service organizations, schools, universities, colleges, businesses, arts centers, performing arts organizations, and eligible government entities to participate. If your organization, or a program that your organization manages, meets the criteria for a Coming Up Taller award, we welcome your nomination. If you know of other organizations and programs you believe warrant consideration, we would be grateful if you would share this letter and nomination form with them.
The postmark deadline for nominations is January 30, 2006. For guidelines and nomination application, visit Coming Up Taller. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to contact the Presidents Committee on the Arts and Humanities at 202-682-5409.
