The award is open to current U.S. music teachers, and anyone can nominate a teacher - students, parents, friends, colleagues, community members, school deans, and administrators. Teachers are also able to nominate themselves, and nominated teachers are notified and invited to fill out an application.

The recipient is recognized during GRAMMY® Week, attends the GRAMMY Awards® ceremony and a range of other GRAMMY Week events, and receives a $10,000 Honorarium. In addition, the nine finalists each receive a $1,000 Honorarium and the schools of all 10 finalists receive matching Grants.
