Mexic-Arte Museum is thrilled to invite you to join the Live Stream Watch Party during the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award Ceremony, broadcasting live from the White House. Mexic-Arte Museum's Screen It! will receive 1 of 12 National Awards presented by First Lady Michelle Obama for effectiveness in developing young people’s learning and life skills by engaging them in the arts or humanities.

The National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award is the nation’s highest honor for after-school arts and humanities programs. The award recognizes and supports outstanding programs that lay new pathways to creativity, expression, and achievement outside of the regular school day. These programs excite and engage a range of students, cultivating imagination, collaboration, discipline, and academic success—with demonstrable results. They also provide safe harbors after school, on weekends, and during the evenings for children and youth in some of our country’s most at-risk urban and rural settings.
