An Incredible PlatteForum Achievement
This is a big deal! PlatteForum’s Artlab program has just been selected by President Obama’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities as a Coming Up Taller award semifinalist. The Coming Up Taller awards recognize and support outstanding arts and humanities based programs throughout the country.
After reviewing 459 nominations from 48 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, the ArtLab program was selected as one of the 50 semifinalists, distinguishing it as one of the top arts and humanities based programs in the nation. If selected for the award, PlatteForum will receive a plaque and a check for $10,000 presented by Michelle Obama in Washington D.C.
Congratulations to PlatteForum’s directors, volunteers, mentors and interns for a well deserved nomination!
