On behalf of our program partner, Newsday, LIAA Board of Directors, Scholar-Artist Educator's Committee, and our staff - we want to congratulate each and every one of our 40 winners this evening.

We also must thank our dedicated arts educators from across the island for their hard work and endless support they have shown their students. This night is also in celebration of you.

Sit back, grab your snacks, and ENJOY THE SHOW!

After the ceremony, please consider making a donation to LIAA on behalf of our honorees so that this important program can continue to recognize the arts as an integral part of education, and celebrate these students' incredible accomplishments.
