Ohio Citizens for the Arts Foundation, in partnership with the Ohio Arts Council, offers a unique community service opportunity for high school students in conjunction with Ohio’s annual Arts Day and Governor’s Awards for the Arts in Ohio. Six high schools from around the state will be chosen to send a team of ten students to Columbus to serve as student advocates. These students will participate in a range of activities highlighting the value and importance of the arts and arts education as a part of a complete curriculum. This is a valuable opportunity for your students to participate in the democratic process in a way that is personally meaningful to them.
You are invited to express your interest in having your students participate in Arts Day 2014 to be held in Columbus on Wednesday, May 21st. Please respond by writing a brief statement of your interest in participating and what you hope to achieve through the student advocates program by November 22, 2013 via email, fax, or US mail (contact information can be found at the close of this message). High school selections will be made by the end of November from those indicating their interest to participate.
Deadline: November 22
