WEST POINT-CLAY COUNTY ARTS COUNCIL
AWARDS NORMAN ARMSTRONG ARTS IN EDUCATION GRANTS
Named for Norman Armstrong, one of West Point’s most beloved arts advocates, the Arts in Education Grant Program is available to teachers in area public and private schools. “Norman ate, slept, and dreamed about the arts. It was his passion, and he would be so pleased to know our children are having arts experiences integrated into their regular curriculum,” commented Lucile Armstrong, Norman’s widow.
Teachers in both public and private schools may apply for mini-grants to support art experiences in the visual arts, music, drama, dance or creative writing. The Norman Armstrong Arts in Education grant program is administered by the West Point/Clay County Arts Council. Offered yearly, applications can be for supplies, teaching materials or equipment exclusive to the arts, as well as for tickets or admission to arts programs, teacher training workshops in arts education, or other activities that will enhance enjoyment and experience of the arts for students.
All schools, grades K-12, both public and private in West Point and Clay County are eligible for the grants, and all teachers in all subjects may apply, although fine arts teachers are especially encouraged to do so. Priority will be given to schools which demonstrate the most need and which have not already received funding from other sources.
Deadline for 2023-2024 must be postmarked by January 17, 2024.
Grant applications can be requested by contacting Lewise Jackson at 662-295-2317.
