The LIMHOF School Recognition Program is designed to identify Long Island High School music programs that are creating notable music experiences for their students and that are incorporating the National and NY State Standards for The Arts in creative and meaningful ways. LIMHOF accepts applications from Brooklyn, Nassau, Queens and Suffolk counties for this prestigious review. Application categories included program details, inclusion of national and state standards for music in curriculum, facility, staffing, and community and board support. Applications were reviewed by a panel of music educators, some of whom have been recognized as the Long Island Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame’s “Music Educators of Note.” Submissions for 2020 will be accepted starting January 1st, 2020 and all schools are welcome to submit an application.
