Excellence and Innovation
Applications are now open for the 2016 College Board Award for Excellence and Innovation in the Arts. This annual award, for programs that serve students in grades 6–12, recognizes and celebrates the achievements of arts initiatives that promote learning and creativity in exemplary and inventive ways.
Awards are given in three categories:
- Arts Integration: For a program that uses an innovative approach to cross-curricular study, drawing connections between arts-based learning and the themes, content, and ideas of other subjects.
- Equity Through Arts: For a program that uses the arts as a tool for increasing academic engagement among underrepresented students.
- Civic Engagement/Professional Partnerships: For a program that uses art experiences as vehicles for engagement with local arts professionals and/or nonprofit organizations.
An award of $5,000 will be given to a winning school in each category. Among the three winning schools, one will be named the national winner and will be awarded an additional $2,500.
The application deadline is April 18, 2016.
