Is your school using triangles and *shudder* recorders to teach you music? Well, KISS FM and Ehrlich Toyota on 47th Avenue in Greeley want to fix that.
More and more, studies are showing that music education is important to the intellectual development in students. But due to budget cutbacks in our schools, music education programs are suffering. KISS FM and Ehrlich Toyota want to make sure that schools that want to have a music program have access to the tools needed to build the program.
We will be giving one lucky school in Larimer or Weld County, Colorado $5,000 in cash and prizes to be used for their school music program. But the only way we know who to give it to is by nominating the most deserving school.
Listen for your chance to call us on Fridays at 4 PM and tell us why your school deserves a music makeover.
In order to win the music makeover, you must nominate the school that you feel deserves a chance to win $5000 in cash and prizes for the contest. The school that receives the most nominations between June 3 to July 14, 2013 will be the winner.
But that does not mean you can start sending e-mail after e-mail to us or stuffing the submission box with your submissions. Only ONE entry per person will be accepted for the entire contest. (That means if you submit ONE entry via e-mail, you can NOT submit via the online form, the entry box at Ehrlich or any other method.) Duplicate entries will not be accepted or counted.
Tell all your friends, get your neighbors involved - tell them via Facebook, Twitter or e-mail to come to kissfmcolorado and help your school out!
Is there an old clarinet or trumpet sitting in your house collecting dust? Many schools would be happy to have access to your instruments to train the next generation of artists.
Just drop off your unneeded, gently used musical instruments at the KISS FM Studios, 4270 Byrd Drive or at Ehrlich Toyota on 47th Avenue in Greeley. We'll work with area schools to get them into the hands of kids who could use them. And who knows - the next Ed Sheeran or Bruno Mars could be going to school right here in Northern Colorado.
