Brooklyn, NY, August 19, 2012 --( Arts education helps students think critically, improve
motor skills, express themselves creatively and build confidence. But the arts are often the first casualty
when cash-strapped schools face a shortfall. New York City Public School budgets have shrunk by nearly
14% since 2007, and 2011 school budgets were cut 2%.

The Create Unity Collaborative brings together a diverse group of young professionals to provide art
opportunities and mentorship to New York City youth while raising money for their schools. Public
school students in grades 3-12 were asked to submit photography, painting, poetry and fashion designs to
the competition. The winning students will get to display their work at a gallery event alongside work
donated by professional artists. All proceeds from ticket, art and clothing sales will go to the winning
students' schools for needed supplies.

Apparel designer and entrepreneur Monique Glover founded Create Unity because she believes access to
the arts is important for every student's educational development. "If wonderful teachers throughout my
public school years didn't take special interest and expose me to creative projects and contests, I don't
think I would have been as focused or understood the strength of my talents," says the LaGuardia High
School of the Performing Arts and Pratt Institute graduate. "It is my responsibility now to brighten a few
light bulbs in young minds."
