The Tony Awards and Carnegie Mellon University Open Submissions for the 2019 Excellence in Theater Education Award

Behind every great performance is inspiration, and behind inspiration is a great teacher.

Did a theatre educator make a difference in your life, or the life of someone you know? The Tony Awards® and Carnegie Mellon University are looking for the teachers who create the next generation of theatre artists. These dedicated professionals discover talented students, nurture them, inspire them and set them off on a lifelong journey as theatre supporters and professionals.

The Excellence in Theatre Education Award recognizes a K-12 theatre educator in the U.S. who has demonstrated monumental impact on the lives of students and who embodies the highest standards of the profession. The winning teacher will be recognized on the 2019 Tony Awards telecast on CBS on June 9. The award comes with a grant of $10,000 for the teacher's theatre program, and tickets for the winner to attend the Tony Awards ceremony and Gala.
