THE PRINCIPAL COUNTS
Our research has shown that, more often than not, a school with a strong music program is a school with a strongly supportive Principal.
It is important to acknowledge such support. That is exactly what our Principals of Music Awards do.
Every Principal nominated for an award will receive a letter from the Coalition applauding the role they play in ensuring that all students in their school have access to music.
Nominations will be reviewed by a Selection Panel comprising past and current Board members of the Coalition. Those Principals rated highest on the award criteria (see below), will be considered Finalists.
In each of four regions (Eastern, Central, Western and Northern Canada) a Principal will be chosen for their “above and beyond” support. Winners will receive a plaque honouring this achievement and a donation of $1,500 will be made to the music department of the school of each Principal selected. All Finalists will receive a Finalist Certificate.
Nominations can be submitted by a teacher, parent or student. Please read the award criteria carefully before submitting. Click here
The Nomination Form must be submitted electronically. Do not forget to also email email@example.com up to three letters of support.
Please submit nominations by October 31, 2013. The awards will be announced by November 28, so you’ll be able to give your Principal a holiday gift. You could even present the letter, certificate or award at a December concert!
