On October 8, 30 Scholastic Award-winning teens convened in Washington, D.C. to participate in an exhibition reception and ribbon-cutting ceremony for ART D.C., the Alliance’s ongoing collaboration with the U.S. Department of Education and the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities. For the next year, their works and others from the 2010 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards will be on display at the DoED and the PCAH and will represent to policy makers, officials and notables on Capitol Hill the value of arts education.

Scholastic Award-winning students who attended the festivities came from as far away as California, and woke up as early as 4AM to drive down from New York City. In addition to a ribbon cutting ceremony, students also took a tour of the capitol building and participated in a creative development workshop with performance artist and poet Regie Cabico. Also present to honor these young artists with some words of inspiration were Martha J. Kanter, Under Secretary of the U.S. Department of Education; Virginia McEnerney, Executive Director of the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers; and Rachel Goslins, Executive Director of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities.
