Arts Educator of the Year Award

Fifth Annual Music Educator of the Year
& Second Art Educator of the Year Awards

Nominations are now being accepted for the fifth annual Music Educator of the Year Award sponsored by the Canton Symphony Orchestra (CSO) and the second annual Art Educator of the Year co-sponsored by the Canton Museum of Art and Massillon Museum. The awards will be presented in March through a virtual presentation.

 

The Canton Symphony Orchestra is happy to continue the partnership with the Canton Museum of Art and Massillon Museum to celebrate our Art Educators in the region.  The purpose of the annual award is to promote a greater understanding of and appreciation for music and art education as well as to honor those individuals who are making a real difference in our community through their dedication to arts education. Winner of each award will receive a $500 check.

Nominees must be licensed Music and Art Educators in a public, private or parochial school classroom setting in Grades K-12, in the region served by the Stark County Educational Service Center.  Educators from all fields of Music and Visual Arts are eligible. The honored Educators will be selected from a field of ten finalists chosen by a panel of qualified judges from the community.  All nominees will be recognized at the presentation. Former recipients of the award are not eligible to win in consecutive years.

Anyone can nominate a music or art educator for the award.
