National Music Foundation Invites Applications for American Music Education Initiative

Deadline: September 16, 2002

The American Music Education Initiative of the National Music Foundation is designed to identify, recognize, and support the creative educational accomplishments of teachers who use American music in the classroom and to encourage the teaching of American music in schools throughout the country by celebrating the work of these teachers and sharing their award-winning lessons online.

Eligible teachers are invited to send the foundation examples of lessons that incorporate American music. The lessons can be for any subject, in any K-12 grade, and may use any type of American music. Teachers whose lessons are selected as finalists and semi-finalists will receive grants of $500. All selected lessons are published on the foundation’s Web site, where they remain available at no charge for other teachers to use or adapt. The originating teachers retain full credit for authorship and ownership of the lessons.

For complete guidelines and application, as well as lesson plans, see the program’s Web site.
