Broward Cultural Division won a Silver ADDY® award for the graphic design and production of the 2011 Arts Teacher of the Year Invitation. Broward County’s Arts Teacher of the Year program and its recognition ceremony, is a tribute to excellence in arts education in the County. The graphic for the annual event is important for branding and recognition. The Division’s creative team is led by Community Development Director Jody-Horne Leshinsky; it includes Jose Amador, ArtServe (graphics), Samantha Rojas, Swan Communications, Inc.

Since 2004, Broward Cultural Division has received a gold ADDY and seven Silver ADDY awards from the American Advertising Federation of Fort Lauderdale, plus one silver ADDY from the American Advertising Federation 4th District (regional awards).
The ADDY® Awards—often referred to as the Grammys of the South Florida advertising industry—honor excellence in advertising and cultivate the highest creative standards. Each fall the competition begins at the local level with the 210 AAF member clubs around the country. Entries must first be submitted in a local competition to be eligible for the ADDY® process. The local winners proceed to 14 regional competitions, and those winners proceed to the national finals. With 60,000 entries, the ADDY® Awards are the nation’s largest advertising competition.
The Broward County Arts Teacher of the Year Program was created by the Cultural Division in 1985; and is sponsored by the Cultural Foundation of Broward to annually recognize the importance of arts education in Broward County schools. Teachers, whose primary assignment is in an arts discipline, including dance, drama, music, visual arts and media arts, are eligible to apply or be nominated.
