TAX COLLECTOR HONORED WITH COMMUNITY ARTS AWARD


Kids Tag Art Program Recognized

BARTOW, Florida/ PR Free/ December 20, 2011

Joe Tedder was recognized on behalf of Kids Tag Art and Polk County Schools by the Polk Arts Alliance, Inc. (PAA), Polk County?s official Local Arts Agency, at their 5th Annual Community Arts Recognition Program (CARP) Awards on December 15th.

Kids Tag Art is a school fundraising project originating here in Polk County that inspires fifth grade art students to design their own specialty plate art. Kids Tag Art inspires young artists to create their own unique design, learning the practical application of license plate art to support worthy causes, fashioned after Florida's 100+ specialty license plates. However, these tags are strictly art and not for use as legal identification on the rear bumper of cars. Now into its' fifth year, Kids Tag Art is included in most elementary school curriculums across the County, creating thousands of unique designs, and as a result, instrumental in raising funds for classroom art supplies.

The Major Sponsor for the 2011 Kids Tag Art program is Southern Homes.
