Bob Curtis – Awards Chair

Do you know an art teacher who is doing an outstanding job?

Have you been inspired by the efforts of some art teacher you know?

If you can say “yes” to either of these questions, please nominate them for an award.  Now is not too early since everyone is still in school and communication is easier.  The deadline for nominations is August 15.

The objectives of the OAEA Awards Program are:
• To recognize excellence in the many outstanding individuals in our state;
• To focus professional attention on quality art education and exemplary art educators;
• To increase public awareness of the importance of quality art education;
• To set standards for quality art education and how they can be achieved; and
• To provide tangible recognition of achievement, earn respect of colleagues, and enhance professional opportunities for OAEA members.
