Newton D. Baker School of Arts Wins Two Awards

Middle school students at Newton D. Baker School of Arts, 3690 West 159th Street, won a $5,000 grant for a Youth Sing Out competition at the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage. Working with an artist from Roots of American Music, the students created an original song about tolerance and then performed the song for judges. It is their third consecutive win since the annual competition began.

An additional $10,000 was won for the school because 100% of the students in the 6th through 8th grade middle school participated in an essay contest also held by the Maltz Museum. Students shared personal stories of discrimination and ways they plan to help encourage the end of bullying, intolerance, and indifference in their communities.

The original winning song will be performed at an awards ceremony, being held at the Cleveland Museum of Art on Thursday, April 21. The ceremony starts promptly at 6:45 p.m., and all are invited to attend. Click here for the invitation and details.
