The Bammy! Awards
    "It takes a village to educate a child." - Anon


    Perhaps the greatest threat facing all educators today is the relentless national criticism of America's public schools. The national narrative that is driving the negative public perception of education is leading to a decrease in public confidence and calls for reduced financial support. Today, educators face intense scrutiny and criticism, while what is right in American education is largely ignored.

    The Bammy Awards is a cross-discipline honor that identifies and acknowledges the extraordinary work being done across  the entire education field every day-- from teachers, principals and superintendents, to school nurses, support staff, advocates, researchers, school custodians, early childhood specialists, education journalists,  parents and students.  The Bammy Awards were created to help reverse the negative national narrative that dominates the education field.

    The Bammy Awards acknowledge that teachers can't do it alone and don't do it alone. The Awards aim to recognize the collaborative nature of education, to encourage respect in and across the various domains, to raise the profile and voices of the many undervalued and unrecognized people who are making a difference in the field and to elevate educators, education and the value of life-long learning in the public eye.

     

    Envisioning a world that values education like it values entertainment


    The Bammy Awards is a national celebration of the value of education, educators and life-long learning.  The honors are presented by the Academy of Education Arts and Sciences International, which includes an eclectic cadre of leading educators, education leaders, education professors, journalists, editors, researchers, commentators, advocates, activists, visionaries and pioneers.  The Academy is comprised of a Board of Govenors, a Council of Peers and the executive committee.

    The Academy presents two honors in every category -- the Bammy Award and the Educator's Voice Award. Members of the Academy of Education Arts and Sciences International select the Bammy Awards  honorees. However, you, the online education community, determine who receives the Educator's Voice Award by voting on the Bammy Awards web site for the nominated people, programs or organizations that you believe are making a significant difference in the field.
