School Arts Grants

Schools in our region are now eligible to get moony to help their students experience the arts.

The Missouri Arts Council is offering $500 per school in the new "Big Yellow School Bus Grant" which will help pay for transportation to museum art exhibits and performances outside of the school. Michael Donavan with the arts council says the grants are a direct result of dwindling budgets in Missouri's schools.

Schools must apply 2 months before the transportation event is needed but should hear within one month if they will be receiving the money. More information is on the Missouri Arts Council website.
