Schmitt Music's Educators of the Year award 2015-2016

Schmitt Music appreciates all of our music educator friends. We recognize that each and every one of you makes a monumental contribution to music education and to the lives of our students.
We are searching for educators who go above and beyond, who contribute in and out of the classroom, who are revered by students and community, and who deserve an ovation for their efforts. THE SEARCH IS ON!

This year we’re accepting nominations in three categories for Schmitt Music’s 2015-2016 Educators of the Year! You may certainly nominate educators in more than one category or nominate multiple candidates in one cateogry. There are only a few prerequisites that you need to consider:

• Your nominee must be actively teaching this school year
• You must nominate your candidate for one of the three categories: elementary, middle school, or high school
• Your nominee must have a minimum of three years’ experience in the classroom at that level
• Your nominee must currently be contributing to music education outside of his/her school district

Nominations will be accepted through December 15, 2015. Click here to download a “Nomination Form” (1.6MB PDF), or ask your Schmitt Music School Representative for a form, complete the nomination information, and return it to your Rep.

Nominated educators will be notified and asked to provide additional information about themselves, their program, and their career. AN impartial panel of music professionals will review all submitted information to determine Schmitt Music’s 2015-2016 Educators of the Year. The selection will be made by February 1, 2015.

Schmitt Music believes in the value of music education and we support you in your efforts to bring music to your schools and communities. We are excited to bring attention to very deserving individuals through the Schmitt Music “Educators of the Year” award. Thank you for your time and nominations!
