826 Seattle, Shakespeare Workshop win national award

Two Seattle arts organizations have been named recipients of the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Awards, considered the country’s highest honor in the field of after-school and out-of-school arts and humanities programs.

826 Seattle, an after-school reading and writing program, and the Young Shakespeare Workshop, are among 12 organizations that will receive their awards Nov. 2 in a White House ceremony hosted by first lady Michelle Obama, who is the honorary chair of the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities.

The awards focus national attention on programs that reach underserved children and youth, and include a $10,000 prize.
