The National Association of Music Merchants has awarded BHS with a Support Music Merit Award!
A total of ninety-eight schools were chosen nationwide. Ballard High School is the only school in Washington state to receive this award.
A SMMA Award recognizes an individual school for their commitment to and support of music education. The award recognizes and celebrates the commitment of school administrators, community leaders, teachers and parents who believe in music education and are working to ensure that it is part of a well-rounded education for all children. Over the 20 years of the survey, this designation has helped school music programs maintain and, in many cases, increase funding for music education programs. The award highlights music as a national education issue and shows what your school or community is doing to provide opportunities for music learning. The award also enables educators to draw attention to music programs that are sometimes overlooked or not fully understood by members of the public beyond the school community.
