Cynthia Robinson has received the 2017 John Cotton Dana Award for Leadership, presented by the Education Committee of the American Alliance of Museums. The award recognizes individuals outside the field of museum education who exhibit outstanding leadership and promote the educational responsibility and capacity of museums. Award judges noted Cynthia's commitment to helping museum educators write and publish in the peer-reviewed Journal of Museum Education, and to inspiring students to be activists who open museums to all audiences. One judge said that, "She has been a strong advocate for the educational responsibility and capacity of museums." Cynthia will receive the award at the AAM conference in May, and will participate in a panel discussion about leadership. The John Cotton Dana Award is conferred on an occasional basis, and was last awarded in 2015.
