The Kennedy Center / Stephen Sondheim Inspirational Teacher Awards, sponsored by The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, is soliciting stories from the general public about educators who made a significant difference in their lives. The stories must be about a single, specific interaction between a teacher and a student that had a significant impact on the student. Entries may be written, audio, or video stories. On March 22, 2017, Stephen Sondheim’s birthday, selected teachers will each receive $10,000 in appreciation for their contributions to the field of teaching. Awardees will also be showcased, along with the people they inspired, on The Kennedy Center / Stephen Sondheim Inspirational Teacher Awards website. Teachers in any subject area from any US school, college, or university are eligible for nomination. Interested applicants will find this opportunity on GetEdFunding, a free database sponsored by CDW•G of thousands of funding opportunities for educators.
Deadline: December 29, 2016, for nominations
