High schools across the United States. can submit a 15-30 second PSA stressing the importance of music in schools and the great music teachers who have encouraged them along the way.
The background music of the PSA should be a Foreigner song of the school’s choice, performed in any style by the school choir. Suggested talking points are:
• Who was the music teacher who inspired you? Why was he/she so inspirational?
• What was the most important lesson about music you learned?
• Why is music education important?
• What are your memories of your first music teacher?
• What would you say to other kids who want to pursue a career in music?
Schools should upload their entry to YouTube and email the link to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The program runs from now through Oct. 31, 2013.
One winner will be chosen by the band and will receive a $10,000 grant for use in their music and audio/visual departments.
The winning PSA will be posted on GRAMMYInTheSchools.com.
