Community Spotlight

This is a reflection of community support for music education in our schools as well as our outstanding educators, students, parents and community partners who work so hard to make music education a highlight of the Blaine County education. We are proud that we have music specialists in every school and that we can give students exceptional music education opportunities, and we are grateful for that. We are also grateful for the outstanding partnerships that enhance our music education programs significantly.

The BCME and its counterpart, the SMMA award recognize outstanding efforts by teachers, administrators, students and community leaders who share in the common goal to ensure access to music for all students in the classroom. 

Thank you to all the schools and school districts that participated. The opportunity to apply has closed.  We will announce the results in the spring.
