‘Glee’ Network Donating $1 Million to School Art Programs
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, the network that brings us the highly-popular show ‘Glee,’ has teamed up with the National Association for Music Education (NAfME), which recently announced a new campaign that will help give back to fans. The ‘Glee’ Give a Note campaign is looking to raise $1 million to donate to school art programs across the country, which they hope will help channel the inner talent of high school students nationwide.
Students are being encouraged to showcase their talent, be it singing, rapping or even doing their best impersonation of ‘Glee’ character Mike Chang, on video to highlight why their school deserves the grant.
Eligible entries will be posted online for public viewing and voting for 30 days. The videos will see two rounds of voting before a panel of NAfME members will give the final vote. In all, 73 schools will reap the benefits of the campaign, meaning grants that will range from $10,000 up to $50,000.
In addition to the ‘Glee’ Give a Note campaign, $1 from the sale of every ‘Glee’ Season 2 DVD or Blu-ray package sold will go toward saving music and the arts in public schools. Those who wish to submit videos for the project can do so online through the special website set up for the campaign, here.
