RTNDF Canada also invites nominations for the Michael Monty Memorial Award. Michael was the master storyteller — the stories of his exploits inspired, entertained and informed thousands of students during his teaching career at Seneca College. Michael’s love for his students and for RTDNA, his booming voice, his hearty laugh and his passion for this industry, were the foundations for the creation of this award. The Michael Monty Memorial Award will be presented to a broadcast educator nominated by students for special recognition.
Applications must be in writing and should be forwarded to the RTDNA Office by mail, email or fax. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org or FAX at (416) 491-1670.
The RTDNA mailing address is:
2175 Sheppard Ave. E.
Toronto, Ontario M2J 1W8
Nominators should indicate why the educator is deserving of special recognition. RTNDF Trustees will review the nominations and their decision is final. The deadline for nominations is April 6th, 2012.
