NHAEA Award Opportunities

The New Hampshire Art Educators’ Association is a professional organization whose mission is to promote quality art education in New Hampshire by providing leadership, member services, advocacy, a format for communication, and opportunities for professional development. Our annual Art Educator Award Program recognizes outstanding art educators who have made significant contributions to Art Education or art programs within their school, community, or professional organization. We’ve changed the format so that we have three tiers of teachers in the pool for Art Educator of the Year, one from each division: elementary, middle, and high school.  To nominate your excellent art teacher, CLICK HERE! Once nominated, we will reach out to the art teacher to let them know they have been nominated and ask them to prepare a portfolio that describes their work and they will need to be, or become, an NHAEA member. To get to the membership application, CLICK HERE. This portfolio must be received no later than June 20th to be considered. For any questions please contact

Part of our mission in supporting our NH art teachers is to help them defray the costs of course work, workshops or art materials either for their own professional development or in support of students. If you find there is a way that you could use $200 towards one of these categories, we encourage you to apply. No teacher can win more than one award per year.
