Show Me the Bammy!
Written by Rae Pica
Friday, 19 September 2014 00:00

Once again, the Bammy Awards will be streamed lived so that everyone across the nation and around the globe will be able to see the presentations. For the first time the red carpet arrivals will also be streamed live, along with a new Red Carpet Live! Show hosted by Tony Sinanis and Joe Sanfelippo.

We’ve been receiving queries about tickets to attend the live event. This year we approached the ticketing process differently as well.

In years past, we held a tweet-up concurrent with the Bammy Awards. Educators who signed on for the tweet-up automatically received tickets. The result was that invitations to the live event went to the same small circle of people each year.

To enable others who are not as connected to get a chance to experience the Bammy Awards live, we began this year by offering reservations first to the honorees, as always, and then to those who received the Educators’ Voice awards and finally past attendees were offered remaining seats. As a result, the awards are more inclusive this year and many first-timers will be joining some of the old-timers at this year's event.

We have a special evening planned this year, including the new 3iTalks and a catered post-event reception. Whether you attend live or watch it remotely, we expect you’ll find the event inspiring.

Stay tuned for details on how to watch the Bammy Awards live!

Warmly,

rae


 
Guess Who's Coming to the Bammy Awards

Smart People, Caring People, Fascinating People

One of the great things about working in the education field is having daily encounters with wickedly smart people. It’s odd, but I enjoy being around people who are scary-smart. Had a chance to sit down with Katrina Stevens recently and her intelligence, knowledge and insights were overshadowing. The encounter made me wonder what I’ve been thinking about and doing for the last ten years. People like Katrina challenge me to think more broadly, deeply and precisely.

Perhaps the only thing better than being around super smart people is being around deeply caring people. People who are deeply passionate about the things that matter to them -- and part of what matters to them is connecting and sharing with other people. These people open my heart wider and keep me wanting to be part of something that serves the greater good on a massive scale.

But there’s a third group whom I find downright intriguing. They are the fascinating people. People can be fascinating for all sorts of reasons. Some are fascinating because they are different or think very differently about the things that matter. Some are fascinating because of the journey they’ve been on, the path they’ve chosen or the experiences they’ve had. Some are fascinating because of the projects, programs and initiatives they are involved in or leading. Some are fascinating because of the idiosyncratic way they approach life and the personal qualities they model just by being who they are. Some are fascinating because of how big they think and the challenges and risks they are willing to take for the things in which they deeply believe. Some are fascinating because they are just odd, eccentric examples of the wonderful diversity of humanity.

On September 27th some of the smartest, most caring and fascinating people in education will be spending an evening together at the Bammy Awards in Washington, D.C.  As I look at the list I see at least two dozen people I would love to have coffee or a beer with, and I’m thrilled to have a chance to meet them face to face. Who are these people? They span the spectrum from classroom teachers like Jon Bergmann and Aaron Sams, who are flipping the education world on its head; to the CEO of National Geographic; to Joshua, the amazing -- a diminutive 12-year-old boy with a gargantuan afro and an enormous heart, who has already contributed to the greater good on a massive scale.

As they say here in California I am soooooo looking forward to spending this one evening with this eclectic group of smart, caring and fascinating people who have at least one thing in common: the belief that it takes a village to educate a child.

See who’ll be attending the Bammy Awards here


                                               

 
2014 Educators' Voice Honorees Announced!
Tuesday, 08 July 2014 00:00

The votes have been counted! The honorees list has been published!

Nominations and community voting for the Bammy Educators' Voice Awards began on April 7th and closed on May 15th. During that period nominations were received in 26 categories across the education field.

Today we released the names of the people who received the most votes in each category and who were identified by their peers in the general education community for their exceptional contributions, collaborative spirit and modeling of what it means to be a 21st-century educator. The outcomes always yield surprises and this year was no exception. Most exciting are the new faces and voices that surfaced during the process.

Note that the Educators' Voice Award is *not* the Bammy Award. Many people have been confused about this and ask about the difference between the two. The Educators' Voice honorees are determined by popular vote (similar to the People’s Choice Awards). The Bammy Award honorees are selected by the Academy of Education Arts and Sciences Board of Governors. Bammy Award honorees are not publicly announced until the Bammy Awards event in September.

Each serves a different purpose.The main objective of the Educators' Voice Award is to cast a wide net and ensure that the awards don't just end up recognizing the same people we know and read about all the time. The goal of the Educators' Voice is to surface great work being done by educators who are way off the radar screen.  Last year, the Educators' Voice Awards brought educators whom we had never heard of to our attention and a couple actually went on to be selected by the Academy to also receive a Bammy Award. 

Congratulations to all of the honorees, and thanks to all who nominated candidates and voted!! Educators' Voice honorees automatically become members of the Academy of Education Arts and Sciences’ Council of Peers. 

 If you know any of the honorees (and even if you don't), be sure to congratulate them! Here is the link to the list.

 


 
Choose2Matter Returns to the 2014 Bammy Awards!

The student chosen will be recognized at the black-tie, red-carpet Bammy Awards event in Washington DC on September 27, 2014. Choose2Matter will assist the award recipient with fundraising efforts to pay travel expenses.

Choose2Matter intends to select a student with the fortitude to take courageous action to create social change, for good. We invite all educators to nominate an individual student who exemplifies the habitudes of a social entrepreneur:

  • Relentless passion

  • Courage and fortitude
  • Visionary innovation


The Student Initiative Bammy Award will be presented to a student who has joined the Chose2Matter movement and shared his or her social entrepreneurship project in accordance with the instructions at http://choose2matter.org/join

The 2013 Bammy Award for Student Initiative was presented to 13 year-old Mallory Fundora, founder of Project Yesu.

To nominate a deserving student, please complete the nomination form below, only after the student has joined the Choose2Matter community on Yoursphere, our community platform, and shared his or her social entrepreneurship project.

The votes have been counted! The finalists have been published!

During the week of May 21st  through May 27th, the Council of Peers, members of the Academy of Education Arts and Sciences, voted on all nominees submitted and selected the finalists in 24 categories of educators.

Congratulations to all of the nominees who made the Bammy Awards' short list for 2014. Members of the list were selected because they are either world-class collaborators, made significant contributions to the field, or have modeled a valued quality of a 21st-Century educator. Independent of who ultimately receives the Bammy Award, each of the individuals on the list is making an important difference in the field, in her or his own unique way. Selection by the Council of Peers for the short list is a noteworthy distinction, recognizing the contributions of these educators who will now become part of the permanent national record we're building of the great work being done in education.

Click the link below to see if your nominee made the short list of finalists in line to receive a 2014 Bammy Award. If your nominees made the list, be sure to congratulate  them with a post on Facebook and Twitter #BammyAwards.
