Responsive Classroom To Sponsor 2013 Bammy Awards

"The positive response to the inaugural Bammy Awards in 2012 was overwhelming. Clearly the notion of collaboratively acknowledging what is going well in American education is an idea whose time has come," said Errol St. Clair Smith, executive producer of the Bammy Awards. "We commend and appreciate all of the early supporters of this national initiative."

Modeled on the broad scope of the Oscars, Grammys, and Emmys, the Bammy Awards accepts nominations from the public in dozens of education categories, selects nominees for awards, and holds a red-carpet event that brings together constituents from the entire education community to recognize the honorees. The nominations and first round of voting will happen online at www.bammyawards.org.

Two honors, the Educator's Voice Award and the Bammy Award, will be presented in every category. Educator's Voice Award honorees are selected by popular online vote and will be announced in June. Bammy Award honorees are then selected by members of the Academy of Education Arts & Sciences and will be announced at the Bammy Awards red carpet event on September 21st in Washington, D.C., at the Arena Stage Theater.

Nominations may be submitted at www.bammyawards.org.
