The Gershwin Awards application must be completed by a teacher or administrator who represents a New York City area school. While we primarily focus on schools in the five boroughs of New York City, metro area applicants will be considered (this may encompass parts of New Jersey, Long Island, Connecticut and the Hudson Valley).
For Educators and School Administrators
If you are prepared to apply as a representative of a New York City metro area high school, please read on to more clearly understand the Gershwin Awards Application Process, which comes in three parts.
Step One: Download Announcement
CLICK HERE to get started by downloading the Gershwin Awards Announcement. This will help you to understand the program as well as the application process and will tell you more about the sponsors who make this program possible. You may wish to use this announcement to provide written materials to your school or students.
Step Two: Submit Your Application
Once you have decided to participate in the Gershwin Awards, we ask that you identify your school as a participant. This part of the application must be completed by an educator or administrator currently employed by the identified school. You do not yet have to identify the students participating on behalf of your school and should not wait to identify these students before handing in the first part of your application. Space in the program is limited.
Please note that the National High School Musical Theater Awards, of which The Gershwin Awards is a regional chapter, has worked to build a list of qualifying lead roles in a musical. Please CLICK HERE to reference this list when completing your application. If you do not see a show title or role that you believe should be eligible, please contact Melissa Caolo at email@example.com.
Application Due April 26, 2013.

Step Three: Information Packet
Should your school be notified of its acceptance and participation in this year's Gershwin Awards, you will then be asked to fill out an information packet. This packet will ask you to provide details about your participants. You will be notified of a due date of your information packet upon receipt.
