Best Communities for Music Education-A National Music Education Recognition Program
Celebrating 20 Year of Commitment to Music Education
The NAMM Foundation’s Best Communities for Music Education (BCME) program is in its 20th year of honoring schools and districts that demonstrate a strong commitment to continuing and growing their music education programs. 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.
The SupportMusic Coalition is a signature program of The NAMM Foundation that unites non-profit organizations, schools, and businesses working to assure that music education is supported in communities everywhere, and that all children have the opportunity to learn and grow with music.
