Hello Fellow Advocates!

So, it's the beginning of a new year for students, parents, and teachers! Many of our kids are looking at bare supply cabinets, empty walls, dull scissors, and broken crayons.


This fall we are partnering again with KRIS Wine for the fourth annual Art of Education program. KRIS Wine awards 16 schools in the United States a total of $25,000 in grants to improve academic achievement through quality arts education.
As schools continue to cut arts education budgets, every extra dollar towards arts education from our corporate partners like KRIS Wine helps. (For a list of last year's schools, and how they benefitted, visit http://blog.artsusa.org/2013/09/06/kris-wine-art-of-education-2012-winners-2/)

Visit KRIS Wine's facebook page to vote everyday between September 9 and October 31, for your favorite school to win $5,000 for arts education.  Be prepared to answer the question – how would YOU have your favorite school spend $5,000?

And be sure to share this with your friends! Help mobilize parents, students, PTA, administration, and your community.

Many Thanks from all of us at Keep the Arts in Public Schools, and Americans for the Arts.
