School Board Award

September 12, 2012

Do you have a supportive school board?

If you answered this question YES I suggest you read this information. The Kennedy Center Alliance for Arts Education Network and National School Boards Association recognize a school board annually who has demonstrated support for and commitment to high-quality arts education in its school district. This national award recognizes districts that have included all four major artistic disciplines – visual arts, music, theater and dance – in their programs.

If you believe that your school board is eligible please take a look at the nomination form found at The deadline for the application is December 3, 2012.

The award program involves one school board per state that comprises the maximum national pool of nominees. Final selection is made by a national panel of educators and arts professionals including representatives of the KCAAEN and NSBA. The winning school board receives a plaque presented at
the NSBA Annual Conference, along with a cash award of $10,000 to use for their arts education programs.

Full details and nomination materials can be found at The nomination deadline is December 3, 2012. One nomination is invited from each U.S. state. You can
contact your local State Alliance for Arts Education<> or State School Boards Association<> to
