President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities “2010 Coming Up Taller Awards”

At the Coming Up Taller awards ceremony held at the White House earlier this month, Mrs. Michelle Obama captured the spirit of the Coming Up Taller Award when she said that achievement in the arts and humanities is a bridge to achievement in life.

The Presidents Committee on the Arts and the Humanities (PCAH) is inviting nominations for the 2010 Coming Up Taller Awards. In partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), we are embarking on the thirteenth year of the Coming Up Taller Awards, which recognizes the accomplishments of exceptional arts and humanities after-school and out-of-school programs. Coming Up Taller finalists receive a $10,000 award, an award plaque, and an invitation to attend the Coming Up Taller Leadership Enhancement Conference in Washington, DC. In addition, the Coming Up Taller awards ceremony is traditionally held in the Fall at the White House, with the awards bestowed by the Presidents Committees Honorary Chairman, First Lady Michelle Obama.

Included with this announcement is a PDF of the 2010 nomination application. We encourage you to share this PDF or link to the Coming Up Taller website, http://www.pcah.gov, with your members. Please feel free to post this announcement on websites, in newsletters and in other forms of communication.

The deadline for nominations is Friday, January 29, 2010.

If you have questions, please visit our website or contact the Presidents Committee at (202) 682-5409.
