Research shows that young people who are engaged in the arts do better in school and are more involved in their communities. They also demonstrate higher academic performance including increased standardized test scores and lower drop-out rates than those students not involved in the arts. Tickets are distributed to economically-disadvantaged children through local community service organizations and Title 1 schools that have been pre-approved based on their ability to distribute scholarship tickets to qualified kids.
