The prestigious New Jersey State Governor’s Jefferson Awards ceremony was held on May 1, 2012 at the Newark Museum and our very own Mallory King was recognized in the Founders/Innovators category for her work at Arts To Grow. More than 1400 nominations were submitted for this year’s awards.

King’s mission is to engage children in the artistic process by providing free, highly tailored and professionally taught arts education programs to youth who have limited access to the arts. Since its launch in 2005, Arts To Grow has offered 74 high quality custom programs to over 1600 children in the NY/NJ metro area.

Arts To Grow’s impact on local communities is unprecedented.  The children who participate in the programs have developed an enduring passion for learning and have gained the confidence to reach their full potential. Students who regularly participate in the arts remain engaged in their academic classes, score higher on their SATs, and graduate from high school better prepared to succeed in college and their careers.
