The people who bring you the GRAMMY Awards want to say thank you to all those teachers who have made an impact in music education in the schools.
The Music Educator Award was established to recognize current educators (kindergarten through college, public and private schools) who have made a significant and lasting contribution to the field of music education and who demonstrate a commitment to the broader cause of maintaining music education in the schools.
Winners of this program are awarded a $10,000 personal honorarium, a matching school grant of the same amount, and a trip to the 2019 GRAMMY Awards.
Melissa Salguero, the 2018 Music Educator Award Winner, was a former Hillsborough County Public Schools teacher at Martinez Middle School.
