Residents have until Oct. 31 to help the art program at Brunswick Acres Elementary School win a $5,000 grant.
The Kris Wine and Americans for the Arts are offering $25,000 in grants to support K-12 public school art programs throughout the country. The school with the most votes on the Kris Wine Facebook page will win the top prize of $5,000 and Brunswick Acres is in a tight race for the top spot.
"The cost of art materials goes up each year, while the budget for it gets lower each year," said Brunswick Acres art teacher Suzanne Tiedemann in a previous interview. "In other districts the art program is the first to get cut, so we're lucky to be in a district that supports the arts, but we're always looking for a way to subsidize the cost. This $5,000 grant could last us for years and truly benefit the art program."
Helping Brunswick Acres in their efforts to win the $5,000 grant is simple and only takes a minute.
