21st Century Fox and Give a Note Foundation are joining together to recognize those special music teachers who inspire their students to reach further, dig deeper, and achieve on a higher level! The 21st Century Fox Give a Note Grants were created to honor the legacy of FOX’s AMERICAN IDOL, the cultural phenomenon that created some of music’s biggest stars and inspired millions of young people to participate in school music programs across the country. Our “MusicEd Idol” Grant program will award $1000 grants to 20 music teachers to support their music program. Winners will be announced in October.
We need your help to spread the word for nominations for 2016 “MusicEd Idols”! Here is the link for more information: bit.ly/MusicEdIdol.
Nominating a #MusicEdIdol is easy! And anyone can submit a nomination! (Nominees must be presently teaching grades PK – 12 (pre-kindergarten through high school) in an accredited school).
