Attention K-12 public and private school teachers who integrate music into your classroom curriculum! The GRAMMY Museum is excited to announce the 2011/2012 Jane Ortner Educating Through Music Awards, honoring teachers who use music as a way to teach content standards.
Jane Ortner was a devoted and beloved public school teacher who recognized the critical importance of music in the education of students at all levels. Through the generosity of the Ortner family, The GRAMMY Museum is pleased to honor Jane Ortner’s memory with the establishment of an annual award that recognizes public and private school teachers, from kindergarten through high school, who successfully incorporate music into their classrooms.
The GRAMMY Museum will be accepting original elementary, middle and high school curricula from August 15, 2011 until January 9, 2012. All curricula will be judged by a panel of teachers and music industry professionals based on creativity and teachability. The educator with the best curriculum will win two tickets to the 2012 GRAMMY Awards as well as a GRAMMY Museum admission scholarship for their class during the 2012 school year.
