A press release by the City of Roswell and the Cultural Arts Board (CAB) announces the list of organizations that have been awarded a combined $25,000 from Contracts for Cultural Services, the first ever financial support program developed for Roswell nonprofit arts and cultural organizations. Hillside was awarded $4,200 to support our Artist Day! Artist Day is an event where artists of various disciplines share their talents with students in hands-on workshops, and students participate in personal art projects based on an artist from history.
Now in its fourth year, Hillside’s Science Day program’s success has inspired several other North Fulton schools to implement their own Science Day and has prompted the Sawnee EMC Foundation to award our program with its fourth consecutive Bright Ideas Grant!
