Arts Corps Wins the Nation's Highest Honor for After-School Arts Programs

Posted by on Mon, Nov 19, 2012 at 2:32 PM

Arts Corps is a winner of the 2012 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award, given in the East Room of the White House today by Michelle Obama.

David Danh of Burien, age 15, who has been taking breakdancing classes with ArtsCorps for three years, was there to accept.

A couple years ago in The Stranger, I explained how Arts Corps is the biggest school in the city without a building, and why I think it's the most awesome secret thing in Seattle arts (and it's still pretty secret).

In addition to the recognition of being one of only 12 winners from a pool of 350 applicants and 50 finalists, Arts Corps receives $10,000.
