American Girl & Americans for the Arts


Forward to a Friend
Americans for the Arts and American Girl are teaming up to help support arts education in U.S. schools.

American Girl’s 2013 Girl of the Year, Saige Copeland, is a spirited and imaginative young girl who loves painting. When budget cuts take away art class at her school, Saige draws on her talents, mobilizes others, and takes action to bring the arts back.

To support Saige’s message about the importance of preserving arts programs in U.S. schools, Americans for the Arts and American Girl are proud to announce the Elevate the Arts grants contest.
Elevate the Arts will provide $45,000 in grants to elementary school art programs across the country. Teachers can enter to win one of the grants by submitting a digital image of a hot air balloon-themed art project and a short statement on why the arts matter. Entries must be received by May 31, 2013. Grant awards will be announced in October 2013.

Whether you’re a parent, caretaker, or concerned citizen, there are many things you can do to take action, just like Saige did. Visit www.AmericansForTheArts.org/AmericanGirl for ideas and resources to get you started in making sure that all kids are getting their fair share of the arts, both in school and in the community.
