The John F. 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 across the United States. Broadway legend Stephen Sondheim frequently attributes his success to the teachers in his life.
The Kennedy Center/Stephen Sondheim Inspirational Teacher 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 (kennedy-center.org/sondheimteacherawards). Last year, 10 teachers were recognized from around the nation for their outstanding influence on students. The recipients each received a $10,000 prize and their stories, as told by the nominating student, were featured on a website dedicated to inspirational teachers.
