Rubrics for scoring NATA Awards have been modified by the Awards Committee and we are seeking member input before the Executive Board will vote on their adoption for the 2016 award year. The proposed rubrics have been created to better align with NAEA rubrics but maintain emphasis of scoring based on statewide engagement. Please view the modified rubrics and provide feedback prior to January 30th. The Executive Board will vote on the adoption of the new rubrics within one week following membership input.

Grow Membership in Nebraska!
One of the best ways to communicate the value of NATA/NAEA membership is to share why you find it important as an artist and educator. Prospective members are more likely to join when you share your personal member story with excitement. And, this is an exciting time to be part of NATA/NAEA. We’re growing!
