Brenda is raising money for PRAIRIE LAKES REGIONAL ARTS COUNCIL INC.
We encourage and promote Arts Education to our Youth through ARTS Scholarships to Kids that live in our 9-county area of Southern MN.
Young People need funds to participate in Music, Dance and Art lessons. We are excited to offer Youth Scholarships to grades 7-12 for $300 for the last several years. We would like to expand this program and provide scholarships to younger students grades 3-6th. Due to limited resources, we have not been able to offer scholarships to younger students and are pleased with this opportunity through GiveMN. The focus of the scholarships would be the same; to take lessons with a professional artist in the areas of dance, music, visual art, etc. Students must live in the 9-county area and the scholarship is paid directly to the Instructor for lessons, and they keep track of how the funds are used. Kids can take their lessons with a private instructor or from an organization like the Dance Conservatory of So. MN or Mankato Ballet; Mankato Children's Chorus, Mankato or New Ulm Suzuki School of Music, or art classes at a local art center. Please help these younger students get involved with the Arts now!
