Live video: Maranda kicks off day one of ArtPrize

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) – It’s the first day on ArtPrize Nine, and Maranda went down to check out all the fun!

PNC Bank’s Saving Challenge

Sean and Becca met with Maranda to discuss ArtPrize Education Days and its PNC Bank Partnership. Each Education Days program is a free 30-90 minute session that includes National Core Arts Standards.

This year, they gave away more than $50,000 in grants to educators and partner organizations to make Education Days possible… thanks to PNC Bank.

Teach your kids about savings, and take a pledge!

Pig E. Banks will be at PNC Bank’s downtown Grand Rapids location to welcome kids and their families to ArtPrize and teach them about savings for the future through the PNC Saving Challenge.
