BRIEFLY COWBOY FESTIVAL TO GET $10,000 GRANT.

SANTA CLARITA - The National Endowment for the Arts will contribute $10,000 to next year's Santa Clarita Cowboy Poetry and Music Festival and the festival's outreach programs to local schools.

In requesting the funds, officials defined the festival as one that enlightens patrons about the rich history of California through song and verse while developing an educational component for school children.

U.S. Rep. Howard P. ``Buck'' McKeon, R-Santa Clarita, helped secure the funding. McKeon, a former Santa Clarita mayor, sits on the National Council of the Arts, which works with the NEA on grants.

The 2004 festival is scheduled for March 24-28.
