Congratulations! Read about these remarkable Principals!

In addition to national recognition, each Principal receives a plaque and a cash award of $1,500 to be applied to their school music program. All finalists receive a certificate of appreciation.

Thank you to all of the nominators and the nominees for their great work throughout the year to ensure that school music programs thrive for our young people!

The Principals of Music Awards are presented annually by the Coalition for Music Education in honour of Mr. George Bishop, one of the founders and the first Executive Director of the Coalition. The awards acknowledge the important role administrators play in ensuring that music programs thrive. The Principals of Music Awards are supported by contributions from the music industry in Canada.

It’s the Principal that counts!
