The QAE Educator Awards

In an effort to recognize the Educators valuable contribution to their practice and to their profession, the Q.A.E. has established an Annual Awards Program. There will be three categories of awards every year:

  • The Student Award will be directed to a student who is in their graduating year and is demonstrating good academic, outstanding stage placement and who has received a strong letter of recommendation from their school and stage placement setting.
  • The Educator Award is designated to practicing “Educators” in the field. The educator in this category must demonstrate overall commitment to their professional development and the profession. This includes all educators working across the “Life Span”.
  • The Field Award is designated to someone who is continuing to make a significant contribution to the field and is supportive of the Q.A.E. objectives.
