Education & Arts Ministers' Awards

The Education and Arts Ministers' Awards celebrate and reward the valuable contribution made by South Australian arts educators. The Awards support teachers (currently working in DECD schools) and artists to instill a knowledge, love and appreciation of the arts in the students they work with.

One award is given annually in each of the following cat egories:

  • Primary Arts Education
  • Secondary Arts Education
  • Artist Working in Schools

 Each recipient is awarded $5,000 to be utilised for a professional learning program of their choice. This can consist of one large opportunity, several small ones or be developed through consultation with Carclew's Arts and Education Program Manager. The Awards Advisory Committee will look for a program of professional learning that extends the nominee's skills while providing them with an opportunity for creative inspiration.

Note: For the first time, in 2015 the primary and secondary teacher Award recipients will be able to use $500 towards arts activities in their school.
