Funding will support Prime Time Family Reading Time and Chautauqua living history presentations in schools.

The Kentucky Humanities Council requests $48,000 for Prime Time Family Reading Time,a library-based reading and discussion of humanities themes for at-risk youth and their parents. Prime Time removes obstacles to families living in poverty and to immigrants who have no opportunities to interact in a positive environment that encourages community participation,educational opportunities, and civic engagement. The proposed Prime Time programs are especially relevant to the theme of "Created Equal." We also propose to use $62,750 to support Chautauqua (dramatic first-person history presentations) in the schools, including paying a part time consultant to represent the Council and help reach under-served areas. Kentucky's funding for education faces even greater challenges during this economic recession. Schools can not afford to bus children to cultural venues. Chautauqua in the schools is delivered to the schools and provides teachers with much-needed teaching materials.
