Enid Scott Conference Award (ESCA)

The Enid Scott Conference Award recognises Australian citizens who have contributed exemplary voluntary services to KMEIA and provides financial assistance towards attendance at the biennial KMEIA National Conference.

Enid Scott (1929-2014)
Enid provides us all with an extraordinary example of dedication and community service. She worked as a Secretary at O’Brien’s Electrics until her retirement. In the mid-1970s she accompanied Jean Herriot on a visit to the Developmental Music Project in the Metropolitan West Region of Sydney. This visit set Enid on a new path of contributing exemplary voluntary services to KMEIA for almost 40 years. During this time, she was the organiser of the first Kodály Summer Schools in Victoria, an executive member of KMEIA’s Victorian Branch and Secretary of the National Council. Enid provided an exceptional model of the way in which volunteers of any background can support music education for children and teachers across Australia. She became well known to all those attending Kodály national conferences and was honoured as a life member of KMEIA. Enid’s great service will be long remembered and admired.
