The $500 Apple for the Teacher project is designed to assist a kindergarten through 8th grade public, parochial, or private school music teacher purchase items for their school music classroom. Up to ten of these monetary awards may be given annually by the Wisconsin Federation of Music Clubs. A WFMC Senior Music Club member may nominate one teacher. An explanation of how the money is to be used to benefit the teacher’s students is required in the application. Winning teachers are eligible to reapply every other year. The application for the Apple for the Teacher Award is available below and is self-explanatory.
