Arts and Humanities Award Ceremony

First Lady Michelle Obama takes the stage after a performance by The Young People's Chorus of New York City during the President's Council on the Arts and Humanities Youth Event in the East Room of the White House, Nov. 2, 2011.

Today, First Lady Michelle Obama honored organizations from across the country that are committed to providing enriching arts and humanities programs for young people. These organizations, recipients of the President’s Council on Arts and the Humanities Youth Award, work both in and out of schools to encourage young people to experience every facet of the arts, from dance and theater to media arts and music composition.  

Groups being honored include:

  • An art center in South Philidelphia that provides free art classes to 2,000 students a year, many of them immigrants
  • A summer workshop in Seattle that teaches students about Shakespeare
  • A 10-day, five-state “moving classroom experience” that takes students along the path of the Civil Rights in the southern United States
