Too Hard to Give Away Money?!!! Deadline for Youth Composition & Songwriting Competition almost Here
If you're a songwriter, support our work with the purchase of a Guitar Purse.
A friend of mine always used to tell me that there are so many Scholarships that go uncollected because no one applies. Violettes by Becky has posted news of our 3rd Annual Youth Composition and Songwriting Competition on many free boards such as Young Composers Forum, Violinist.com..., in Music Teachers Association Newsletters in a couple of states, on facebook pages of music groups.. and of course in our newsletters.
We have extended the deadline for registration to Feb. 14, the same as the submittal date. We have 2 categories, Composition and Songwriter, each divided into 2 age groups, 10 thru 14 and 15 thru 18.
First and second prizes for older composition students (15 - 18) are $800 and $200. Detailed information can be found at Violettes by Becky under Competition; from there, click on the details page to learn about judges, prizes...
First place prize for the older Songwriter Student is a 10 day summer camp session in Nashville with the Annie Moses Band (worth $1,400), and 2nd place a new guitar.
Can you help me get the word out?
There are currently so few entries, we will not be able to justify getting donations for this competition next year. One teacher who found the competition by googling told me that people probably don't believe it. It sounds too good to be true. She signed 2 students on for this year. Last year the first prize student was from New York - she won $1,000 cash! There are no composition entries from New York this year.
All students receive professional feedback. (Or top 30 in each division). Entry fee is $15, part of which goes to Volunteer Judges as a gift. If you can not afford the fee, let us know, and enter for free.
Do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.

Note that Steinway puts on a Piano Competition. It is well respected, and they get paid to do it. This has been a grassroots labor of love, possibly about to end.
