Do you know a worthy organization that educates or trains young people in the skilled craft arts?
AllenBooth.com will award $500 to an inventor's club, carpenter's club, design club, or similar organization committed to training America's youth in a skilled craft.
Students cannot become artisans unless they are exposed to the arts. We applaud the master carpenters, metalsmiths, glass blowers, potters, and handcraft designers that give of their time and knowledge to the next generation.
Groups small and large, formal and informal exist in communities around the USA - one of them will have an extra $500 at their disposal on February 1, 2013 to devote to projects that give students valuable skills.
