"The 2005 award recipients have created opportunities for students to experience Broadway, further encouraging a lifelong appreciation for the arts while developing academic and social skills," commented Jed Bernstein, president of the League. "Both programs also offer teachers innovative learning strategies, using theater to heighten critical thinking, problem solving-skills, and the examination of relevant social themes. These programs reach out to a diverse population that includes students who may not otherwise have an opportunity to experience Broadway theater due to financial constraints or geographic location."
