NACo Arts and Culture Awards – April 17

Calling all Counties – The National Association of Counties (NACo) is accepting applications for its Arts & Culture Award program through April 17. The award program is a friendly competition to recognize an innovative, county-led arts and culture program or project that is creative in its approach to integrating the arts with broader county strategies. The best programs and projects are transferable, engage the community as a whole and have a demonstrated impact on the community. Recent winners include Mobile County, Ala. for its efforts to preserve the Mobile Symphony Orchestra’s strings programs in the county’s public schools (2014), Monterey County, Calif. for its Arts as Intervention and Healing program for incarcerated youth in the Monterey County Probation Department (2015) and Hennepin County for its robust arts and culture programming within its library system (2016).
