Northside and Midland win national Glee Give a Note competition

From the Muscogee County School District

COLUMBUS, GA - Midland Middle School and Northside Music programs earn $10,000 as winners in the Glee Give a Note Contest presented by Twentieth Century Fox Television, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, and the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) and its new Give a Note Foundation.

The Glee Give a Note campaign, started over 3 months ago and will distribute $1 million to 73 schools nationwide in grants ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 to help save struggling music programs.

Students at Midland Middle and Northside High School were among thousands across the country who created submissions in video form during an open call for entries in September.

In October, the eligible entries were posted on www.GleeGiveANote.com and put up for public vote for one month. During this time, students conducted massive grass roots efforts to win votes for their schools, reaching out to their families, friends and communities to get the vote out.

Over one million votes were cast to help choose the finalists. A panel composed of NAfME members conducted a final round of judging and, together with the public vote, determined the winning programs.

The winning videos can be accessed at www.GleeGiveANote.com.
