Art Educators of the Year Awards

Conference time is the time to recognize our AMAZING Kentucky Art Teachers and Leaders! 


KyAEA honors art teachers each year at our annual Fall Conference with awards recognizing their excellence in teaching.  Teachers are nominated by members of the Kentucky Art Education Association.  KyAEA Award Recipients can then go on to compete for the National Art Education Association awards the following year.   Members can nominate art and museum educators as well as school leaders.
