The Illinois Music Education Association is currently seeking nominations for the following awards:

Once all nominations and the necessary supporting material have been received, a decision will be made by the Awards Committee and the ILMEA Board of Directors. The selected recipients will then be notified, in writing, and invited to receive the Award during the General Session of the 2018 Illinois Music Education Conference.

We strive to honor our most distinguished colleagues and increase the visibility of our most supportive benefactors.
