It saddens me to announce the cancellation of the awards ceremonies for YAM & All State, planned for April 4th and May 2nd, due to the COVID-19 and the CDC recommendations for limiting social interactions. Our YAM and All State program directors are working hard to find a virtual platform to honor our students. This process is currently in development. At this point, Emerging Excellence events have been postponed and we will make a decision to reschedule or cancel as more information comes out. Please look out for updates via email and on our Facebook page.
We will host an online Council meeting April 4th at 10:00AM. The Summer Council Retreat and Fall conference 2020 in Iowa City are going ahead as planned, however, this is subject to change as we receive news.
In the meantime, here is what you can do: nominate a teacher or professional for awards, make artwork for the Educators Art Show at our Fall Conference, submit a logo design for our Fall Conference, and vote for our next President Elect and Membership Chair election ballot when it comes out.
This is a quickly evolving situation. Any updates and further information will be posted on our Facebook page and communicated through email.
Stay Safe & Well,
Art Educators of Iowa
