The Chilliwack, BC Optimist Club hosted a new project last weekend and gave away a $1,000 prize.
What was it?
A songwriting contest for teens.
The teens performed their original songs in front of an audience and a panel of three judges announced the winners. In addition to the $1,000 prize, the winner also gets to record their song in a professional studio and have it posted on YouTube.
Here's a link to the newspaper article about the contest: https://goo.gl/lDftsV
What a great idea! It's contemporary and fun and allows students to share their point of view and talent.
