The Alaska Arts Education Consortium advances teaching and learning in and through the arts across Alaska.
AAEC serves educators across the traditional homelands of the Alaska Native peoples, the original stewards of this land. We honor the Iñupiaq, Dene, Yup’ik and Cup’ik, Sugpiaq, Lingít, Haida, Tsimshian, and Unangax̂, who continue to live, practice, and adapt their ancient cultural traditions. As we advance teaching and learning in and through the arts across Alaska, we are grateful for the privilege to grow from their deep cultural wisdom.
Since 2012, the Champions of Arts in Education Award has honored individuals or organizations who promote high quality learning in and through the arts.
This award highlights the positive impact of the arts on the lives of our children and youth.
Please join us in recognizing the 2022-23 school year’s Champions: Savanna Strongheart and Rhianna Herbert.
