For Arts’ Sake created the Principal Arts Leadership (PAL Awards) to cast a light on those principals who stay true to a vision that the visual and performing arts enliven, motivate, and facilitate student success. The goal is to collect stories about the heroic actions on the part of area
principals who have provided students quality arts learning opportunities through strategic collaborations, innovations, persistence, and creative use of resources.

Nominate your favorite principal – of a public, private or charter school throughout our 6-county region – who exemplifies innovation, leadership, collaboration, and persistence in making sure that the arts are a part of the school day and the school climate. A panel will review nominations and select 3 individuals who exemplify the best of arts leadership. Nominations will be accepted through January 30, 2012.

Awards will be presented at the Regional Arts Education Forum held at the Sacramento Office of Education on March 6, 2012 at the luncheon. More information is available here about details. Special thanks to the Sacramento County Office of Education, the Leadership Institute, CCSESA Arts Initiative and committee members from the Sacramento PTA’s and the Mondavi
Center for helping shape this new award.
