NRG Sponsors Young Audiences Competition To Use Creative Arts For Teaching Sustainability

Princeton-based electricity company NRG Energy, Inc., a longtime supporter of Young Audiences New Jersey & Eastern Pennsylvania, has donated $74,500 to create the NRG Energy Creatively Green Awards, a competitive award program to bring arts-based sustainability education to hundreds of schoolchildren and their families.

The awards kicked off late last month with the Creatively Green Family Arts Festival, the pilot event held at George E. Wilson Elementary School in Hamilton, NJ. The successful event featured an exciting evening of hands-on art making workshops for about 300 attendees, highlighted with an educational musical comedy performance by Billy B. the Science Song & Dance Man. Four additional festivals will be awarded during the 2012-2013 school year to individual schools or school districts through a competitive process.

"Young Audiences is always looking for strategic partners who believe, as we do, that the arts are a powerful tool for learning," said Larry Capo, President & CEO of Young Audiences New Jersey & Eastern Pennsylvania. "NRG has given us a great opportunity to link art-making with protecting our planet's environment. Their funding is allowing Young Audiences to produce a series of five family arts festivals that brings together children, parents, educators and artists focusing on what each of us personally and collectively can do to preserve our planet. Thanks to NRG's support, everyone left the event with a renewed sense of personal responsibility to make the world a better place."

Young Audiences is a regional organization dedicated to bringing the arts to children in the New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania area by fostering an arts-rich school curriculum. The NRG Creatively Green Awards were created to put on events that incorporate family involvement and fun, creative education on the science of sustainability. In addition to funding the program, NRG employees will also volunteer their time helping at the events.
