Violettes by Becky is a pay it forward company, to date spending all resources on giving back to youth music education causes. Most significant is the Violettes by Becky national Annual Youth Composition and Songwriter Competition. We are in our 3rd year of the Annual Youth Composition and Songwriter Competition 2015/16. This year, in addition to our very polished contestants, there are 3 inner city arts school classes involved located in Oakland, CA, Flushing, New York and Philadelphia, PA. One has entered garage band compositions created on the computer from 26 students, the other challenges students to enter original songs, and the 3rd uses the classroom time to work on judging entries from other students as a class project. We make room in our competition to judge the entries from each student, giving encouraging constructive feedback. For the inner city schools, we do separate judging and prizes to give them support and recognition. The teachers tell us this is invaluable. It is so rewarding to help give these students recognition, confidence and encouragement, that we are considering only serving the low income arts programs in the future. Note that all judges are volunteers, and we would like to be able to send them compensation in the future. Please support our awesome work by donating towards the competition funding or purchasing products.
