5th Annual High School Recognition Awards applications for 2020 have been posted and are due March 20th
The Long Island Music Hall of Fame welcomes applications from public and private high schools in Brooklyn, Nassau, Queens and Suffolk.
The High School Recognition Program is designed to identify Long Island High School music programs that are creating valuable music experiences for their students and that are incorporating the National and New York State’s Standards for the arts in creative and meaningful ways.
Applications will be reviewed by a panel of music educators some whom have been recognized by the Long Island Music Hall of Fame as “Educators of Note.” High Schools will be given designations of Gold with Distinction, Gold, Silver, Bronze or Emerging. Application categories included program details, inclusion of standards, faculty, as well as community and board support. Recognized schools will have the opportunity to participate in an upcoming Long Island Music Hall of Fame event and will be acknowledged throughout the year.
“The Long Island Music Hall of Fame is committed to music education, it is part of our mission and helps steer many of the programs we have developed. At the High School level we support students with scholarships, educators with the Educator of Note award and the schools/districts that work to keep their programs in the forefront for their students and communities” explained LIMHOF Chairman Ernie Canadeo. “We hope to hear from every district so we can show our support as big fans of music education”.
Applicants are asked to submit their applications by March 20, 2020 to be considered for the recognition program. The application and additional information can be found at: https://www.limusichalloffame.org/scholarshipsgrants/ .
