NFHS Music Association Award
The NFHS Music Association Outstanding Music Educator Award was first given in 1989 when seven individuals received sectional awards. Since that time, 163 sectional and 293 state awards have been presented. Added to those totals for 2016-2017 are seven sectional awards and twelve state awards. Also, 1989 marked the beginning of an annual selection of a NFHS Citation recipient. The Citation is one of the highest awards presented by the NFHS in the fine arts.
Nominations for the NFHS Music Association Outstanding Music Educator Award are solicited from the NFHS state contacts. All new nominations, plus selected past recipients, are considered for state, sectional or Citation awards. Once selected by the NFHS Music Committee, nominators are notified of the status of their nominee and are afforded the opportunity to make the award presentation at a suitable event.
