Nominations Open: Kennedy Center/Stephen Sondheim Inspirational Teacher Awards

Nov. 5, 2012

The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is seeking nominations for the 2013 Kennedy Center/Stephen Sondheim Inspirational Teacher Awards, a series of annual grants that recognize inspiring teachers in the United States.

Now in their third year, the awards were created in honor of American composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim, who frequently attributes his success to the teachers in his life. The awards are presented each year on Sondheim's birthday — March 22 — to a handful of teachers, kindergarten through college, who are nominated via the Kennedy Center website.

All required materials must be submitted online or postmarked by the deadline, Sunday, December 16, 2012. Complete program information and the online nomination form are available at the Kennedy Center website.
