Schools across the country are having to make some tough budgetary decisions this fall. And oftentimes the first programs to get the boot are art and music. But you can do something about it!
VH1 Save the Music and Do Something are calling on you to lead the fight for music education in schools. From now until October 16th, take action — tell everyone to “Save Our Music!” Organize an instrument drive. Create viral videos on what music means to you. Run an awareness campaign in your school. For more project ideas check out the “Save Our Music!” website.
Sign up on DoSomething.org to get started, and if you submit your project ideas by October 23rd you’ll put yourself in the running for a ton of great prizes including:
- The top 5 advocates will receive $1,000 for their school music program and Rock Band Video game packages.
- One grand prize winner gets $2500 in music funding and a Beatles Rock Band game system.
