Announced a partnership with Scholastic Inc. The partnership, established with the mission to focus public attention on the desperate need to support on-going, meaningful arts education programs in our nation’s public schools and to abate the decline in funding for arts programs, will highlight the essential role that the arts play in academic achievement; amplify the long-standing commitment of The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards to our nation’s young people and their teachers; and generate support for establishing and sustaining arts programs across the United States.
