Last year, Young Shakespeare Workshop was honored to receive the 2011 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award, the nation’s highest honor for after-school and out-of-school time programs like ours. We are one of only 12 programs across the country chosen from a pool of more than 471 nominations and 38 finalists for this distinction. The award was presented by First Lady Michelle Obama at the White House on behalf of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
This award recognized that Young Shakespeare Workshop is making an important contribution to the youth we serve and to our community. By engaging kids in the arts/humanities, we’re building critical learning and skills that help them succeed in school and in life.
