Marjorie Loughrey Artists in the Schools Program
Marjorie made a significant contribution to education through her years as an Ottawa School Board Trustee. She believed that an education in the arts was fundamental to the emotional, intellectual and social development of each child, and this conviction led her to play a lead role in establishing the Canterbury School of the Arts. The award in her memory funds an artist to work for one week each year withall the students in one of Ottawa’s inner city elementary schools.
The Education Foundation of Ottawa administers the annual award.
