National Arts Education Association Award
Congratulations George Rodrigue, who received this week from the National Arts Education Association (NAEA) their top national award for "Outstanding Service Outside of the Profession."
The award is given yearly to recognize outstanding achievement and contributions in previous years by persons or organizations outside the field of art education.
Past recipients include Jackie Kennedy, Nelson Rockefeller, Hubert Humphrey and Alice Walton.
Presented during NAEA's annual convention held this year in New York City, the award focuses on Rodrigue's efforts within the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts, including its annual art contest and scholarship program, art supplies for schools, free teaching aids, workshops and more.
