We hope Primary and Post-primary schools around the country are working hard on their entries for our Music for Schools Competition and, if you haven’t begun yet, it’s not too late to start! €10,000 worth of prizes to be won, with two first prizes to the value of €3,000!
All schools interested in participating in this year’s Competition should submit their interest in entering this year’s competition by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. (This does not necessarily oblige your school to enter but is important to help us determine the overall number of entries.) Accompany your expression of interest with a CD or mp3 spoken recording (no more than 2 minutes long), relating what music means to your school, your aspirations for developing music education at your school and what you will do with a Waltons Music for Schools Prize if your school wins one. Selected recordings will be broadcast on RTÉ lyric fm between December and the final entry deadline Friday, 1st February, 2013. For more details on the competition click here.
