2020 State Superintendent's Awards for Arts Excellence


The State Superintendent Awards for Arts Excellence are awarded to high school juniors and seniors who have achieved artistic and academic excellence and served their communities. The arts have great value and are an important component of a well-rounded education. Students who participate in the arts — whether music, drama, dance, or in visual media— acquire skills that transfer to other academic areas and carry forward into adulthood. Please encourage your students and children who meet the criteria to apply for these honorary awards, which I am honored to cosponsor with the Oklahoma Alliance for Arts Education.

— Joy Hofmeister, State Superintendent of Public Instruction
