2019 AAEC Champions of Arts in Education - Nomination Form
The Alaska Arts Education Consortium (AAEC) Champions of Arts in Education Award was created as a way to formally recognize and honor individuals or organizations from around the State of Alaska who “champion” the arts in education. AAEC believes these Champions carry the torch for arts education through high-caliber instruction, arts support, and ongoing arts promotion.

This award is a celebratory action, aimed at highlighting the positive impact of the arts on the lives of our children and youth. The efforts of these champions in teaching and supporting arts across the curriculum reflects the mission of AAEC, which is “to promote learning in and through the arts for all Alaska students.”

AAEC has designated four categories of Champions of Arts in Education, including

*Arts Educator

*Arts Leader

*Arts Advocate

*Arts Student

Each nomination application will be examined through the lens of the following criteria:

The application highlights the nominee’s positive impact on the lives of children and youth in and through the arts as a teacher, mentor, student, role model, and/or advocate.

The application describes the nominee’s personal dedication to creating meaning in his/her/their own practice in and/or through the arts.

In the case of the categories for Arts Educator, Leader and Advocate, the application highlights the nominee’s dedication, over time, to promote high quality learning in and through the arts for Alaska students of all backgrounds. In the case of the category for Arts Student, the nominee's art work exhibits high quality arts learning in any art form across his or her emerging art practice.

The application describes at least one specific account of how and why the nominator believes his or her nominee should be recognized as a “Champion of the Arts in Education” in the Arts Educator, Arts Leadership, Arts Advocate or Arts Student category.

We have included upload buttons in this nomination form. At least one high-quality photo of your nominee required. We encourage you to add additional documentation of how your nomination supports the criteria for Champions. Letters of support, pictures, and any other support materials may be uploaded.
