Piece #2 – Yea to the PCCA!
One of the best opportunities to celebrate kids and the arts is put on yearly by the Perry County Council of the Arts. They are located in my town of Newport and their mission is to support the Arts and Culture in the Region. They provide many opportunities for the people in the area, but of course my favorite thing they do is to put on Youth Art Day. It ROCKS! This is a competition that includes students from the four school districts and homeschooled kids of Perry County (PA). Literature and Fine Arts entries are submitted in February to be judged in time for the exhibits in April. Music, Dance, and Drama judging occurs the day of the event. This year it will be held on Saturday, April 22 at Susquenita High School.
