Lend your voice by voting for your favorite video at www.GleeGiveANote.org.
LOS ANGELES (Oct. 11, 2011) – Starting today, everyone across America is invited to lend their voices – and their votes – for their favorite videos in the GLEE “Give a Note” campaign to help save music and arts programs in public schools.
$1 dollar for every GLEE Season 2 Blu-ray and DVD sold goes towards the $1 million dollar guaranteed commitment. The GLEE “Give a Note” campaign was created by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment in partnership with the National Association for Music Education to help save music and arts programs in public schools. With more than 300 public schools nationwide submitting videos for grant consideration, your vote will be critical in determining the outcome.
After a month-long submission phase that started in September and ended this morning, each video entry is up on www.GleeGiveANote.org and now you can cast your vote to decide the finalists. Visit www.GleeGiveANote.org to view videos, and vote once per day until voting ends on November 8, 2011 at midnight. The schools receiving the most votes will move on to a final selection made by the National Association for Music Education. In December, the winning schools will be announced, with three grand prizes of $50,000 each; 10 first prizes of $25,000 each; and 60 second prizes of $10,000 each.
For more information, including official rules, visit www.GleeGiveANote.org. GLEE Season 2 Blu-ray and DVD is now available in stores everywhere.
