Presented by the Academy of Education Arts and Sciences, the Bammy Award is a cross-discipline award recognizing the contributions of educators from across the education field.


"All across the nation, nominees like [NOMINEE] demonstrate that there is exceptional work being done to educate our children on many levels. Much of the good work being done goes unrecognized and is not covered in traditional media. Students are not the only ones who need validation. More than ever before, educators need to be validated and the stories about what's going right in American education need to be told," said Errol St. Clair Smith, executive producer of the Bammy Awards. “We are delighted to be part of this collaborative, nationwide effort for the fourth year."


Honorees will be announced on September 26th at a red-carpet event in Washington, D.C. The Bammy Awards are presented by the Academy of Education Arts and Sciences, which includes leading educators, education professors, journalists, editors, researchers, commentators, advocates,  activists, visionaries and pioneers. The Academy is comprised of a board of governors, a council of peers and the executive committee.

About the Bammy Awards:

The Bammy Awards is a cross-discipline award that identifies and acknowledges the good work being done all across the education village. The Bammy Awards was created in response to the tremendous national pressure on educators and education leaders to improve student outcomes, the impact of high-stakes accountability and the intense scrutiny that today's educators face.

The awards aim to foster cross-discipline recognition of the collective contributions being made to educate children, encourage collaboration in and across the various domains, elevate education and education successes in the public eye, and raise the profile and voices of the many undervalued and unrecognized people who are making a difference in the field.

The Bammy Awards is organized by BAM Radio Network, which produces education radio shows for the nation's leading education associations.
