The Iowa Association of School Boards, in cooperation with the Iowa Alliance for Arts Education, is participating in an awards program to recognize local school boards for outstanding support of the arts in education. The national program is cosponsored by the Kennedy Center/Alliance for Arts Education and the National School Boards Association.
Each member school board in Iowa is given the opportunity to nominate themselves for consideration by IASB and the Iowa Alliance for Arts Education, a statewide alliance of the professional arts education associations. The two organizations will together select the one Iowa school board to compete at the national level for this award.
The state nomination deadline is October 20, 2009. Nominations must be received in the IASB office by that date. The winner will be notified on November 2, 2009.
