RESTON, VA -- Continuing a five-year collaborative relationship, Give a Note Foundation and 21st Century Fox are currently accepting nominations for a new grant program "Music Education Idols" that benefits the music programs of 20 inspiring music educators across the U.S.
Students, parents and the general public can nominate their music educator by completing a short application that includes a video testimonial (up to 30 seconds) describing how their music teacher inspired them to discover their creative potential. Nominations close October 1, and the winners will be announced on October 21.
Winners selected will receive a $1,000 grant for their school music program between October 21 and November 18. Five will be selected to attend the 2016 NAfME National In-Service Conference (November 10-13) in Grapevine, Texas, and will take part in a panel discussion on how to help students reach their full potential.
