The Emma R. Showman trust endowed the Betty Bradstreet Arts Education Awards in 2003 to carry on Bradstreet’s legacy of promoting fine arts in the community.  This program is unique to Assistance League® Tulsa.

The Betty Bradstreet Arts Education Awards provides financial awards to public school teachers of fine arts for classroom projects. All teachers of fine arts in the Tulsa area are eligible to submit an application for funding.  A selection committee of Assistance League® Tulsa volunteers reviews the applications and provides as many awards as funding will allow.  Committee members visit each teacher receiving an award to see the children enjoying items purchased.
