LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Young songwriters aspiring to reach a wider audience and obtain a professional recording of their work are encouraged to enter the High School Songwriting Contest sponsored by Eastern Oregon University’s music department.
The contest is open to any student enrolled in an Oregon high school east of the Cascades, or any Oregon resident who is home-schooled in grades nine through 12.
Submissions will be accepted through Dec. 1 and there is no fee to enter.
EOU faculty and a professional songwriter/performer will conduct two levels of judging on the music and lyrics of all entries. Participants also receive a free critique of their submissions.
Three winners will be selected to receive cash awards. Top prize is $300; second prize is $200; and third prize is $100. The winners will also be invited to attend a recording session and concert at EOU.
All songs must include lyrics in order to be judged. There are no restrictions to the style of music, as judges will focus on the quality of the song, not on the style or quality of the recording submitted.
Entrants will receive a confirmation and schedule after their songs have been received, and retain all rights to their songs, lyrics and compositions.
Enter by going to eou.edu/music, clicking on the “EOU High School Songwriting Contest” link and filling out the electronic application available at the bottom of the page. Up to three songs may be submitted. Send audio files (MP3 format preferred) to John McKinnon, professor of music, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information contact McKinnon at 541-962-3592.
