PORTLAND — The work of Educate Maine is being recognized nationally for bringing the state’s educators and business leaders together to ensure Maine has a well-educated and qualified workforce.

Educate Maine is this year’s recipient of the Friend of Education, which is awarded by the National Association of State Boards of Education. The award is designed to honor “an individual or organization whose contributions to education are significant and enduring,” according to an association press release.

Since it was founded in 2011, “Educate Maine has established itself as a prominent and respected advocate for education and the economy,” the association said.
