2016 NAMM President's Innovation Award Recipients
The NAMM Foundation has awarded a President’s Innovation Award to 59 college music students from across the country. The award provides a stipend to exemplary college music education, music business and arts marketing students who are exploring careers in the music-products industry. These individuals, selected by application for their commitment and aptitude for leadership and interest in the music products industry, will have access to the NAMM Show and the NAMM Foundation’s Generation Next program. Supporting this opportunity for these individuals is an investment in the industry’s future.
“This award is provided to students who will likely impact the music products industry in the years ahead.” said Mary Luehrsen, executive director of The NAMM Foundation. “The NAMM Foundation is honored to support their career development and welcome their contributions – now and in the future.”
Awardees received a $600 stipend to attend The NAMM Show, with access to more than 1,800 exhibits at the annual global music products trade show in Anaheim, Calif., January 21-24, 2016.
