Outstanding Music Educator

Each year, NWKMEA honors an outstanding music educator in three categories: Elementary, Middle/Junior High School and High School. The outstanding junior high teacher is honored at the mini-convention in November and the others at the mini-convention in December. If you know of a qualified person, you should nominate them. Out of the three award winners, one is chosen to represent NWKMEA for the state KMEA Outstanding Music Educator.

    • Must have been in teaching for at least ten years.
    • Must be a member of KMEA.
    • Program must have shown improvement and/or consistency over the years.
  3. Teachers, administrators, parents, former students, and students may nominate a music teacher.
