The 2015 PACIM, Polish American Cultural Institute of Minnesota Rog Endowment Awards support goes to –

The Polish Arts and Cultural Student Association, PACSA is a brand-new student group at the University of Minnesota. Founded in the spring of 2015, PACSA is looking forward to its inaugural season of bringing Polish culture to the U of M community. As the first and only registered student organization focusing on Poland, its history, arts, language, and traditions, we aim to provide a place for students of Polish descent or extraction a place to celebrate their heritage, and those of other backgrounds an opportunity to become educated about Polish contributions to the world.

POLESOM, Polish Educational Solutions of Minnesota exists to provide and inspire creative and outstanding educational activities that resonate with the Polish-American population. We focus on teaching Polish to children by weaving Polish culture and tradition into our monthly kids clubs, classes, camps and musical performance groups. We promote Polish language, art, culture, and heritage by creating engaging events around all things Polish.
