The Minty Organization for the Performing Arts, Inc. was incorporated as a New York non-profit corporation on November 18, 2013.
The Minty Organization was formed to honor the sacrifice and dedication of students in the Dramatic Arts Programs of the New York High Schools. It aims to promote these programs, performers, and all who support them through The Minty Awards, master classes, and other workshops focusing on the Fine Arts.
“We hope to start a tradition which honors the sacrifice and dedication of Catholic High School students in dramatic arts programs. We believe that these students and their schools provide excellent examples of self-discipline, teamwork, and faith, and we should celebrate their efforts and achievements.” ~ Executive Director, Michael J. Pinto, upon the founding of the Minty Awards, October 2010.
