The opportunity to apply to be considered for a Best Communities for Music Education designation has closed.  We will announce the results in April.

Presented by The NAMM Foundation, the Best Communities for Music Education (BCME) and its counterpart, the SupportMusic Merit Award (SMMA) recognize the outstanding efforts by teachers, administrators, students and community leaders at the district and individual level who share in the common goal to ensure access to music for all students in the classroom.
