Children First receives arts grant

Children First received a St. Louis Park Arts and Culture Grant to produce a poster highlighting the 40 developmental assets. Thanks to connections through Asset Champions Mary Lou and Paige Christensen, four Girl Scouts working toward their Silver Award will be coordinating the project. During the next couple months, the Girl Scouts, Ali, Mariah, Jenna and Kelsey, will contact a representative group of organizations in our community to participate by creating a painting of one of the assets. The 40 paintings will then be reproduced on a poster similar to the one pictured here which was created in Monroe County, NY.

Other grant recipients are the 36 Arts Magazine, Harmony Theater Company and School, Zenon Dance Company, Meadowbrook Collaborative, Margaret Coleman and Denise Tennen.
