According to a press release issued by the museum, the awards were created by the Technology Association of Georgia and the TAG Education Collaborative to promote effort and achievement in science, technology, engineering and math education.
Warner Robins Mayor Chuck Shaheen nominated the museum for the award.
"This is one of the greatest aviation museums in the U.S. and we're very proud to have it here in Warner Robins," Shaheen is quoted in the museum press release. "It tells the story of Robins Air Force Base and the U.S. Air Force to the people form all over the world and provides wonderful education programs for our students and teachers."
