HHS competes in the Glee Give a Note video competition.
« on: October 11, 2011, 10:35:54 PM »
The producers of the TV show Glee are running a competition. Winning schools will be given money, with grand prizes clocking in at an impressive $50,000. Hackensack High has submitted an entry. You can go directly to the entry at http://www.gleegiveanote.com/vote_details.php?id=319 (as of this writing, the site has crashed due to the influx of votes, but will hopefully be up again soon).

You can vote once per day per IP address until November 7th. I encourage any participants and viewers on this forum to vote once a day from as many computers (or smartphones) as possible. It's an amazing opportunity for the music program that has affected the lives of so many of our students and alumni. And please share the link to the video with everyone you know! Email it, tweet it, post it to Facebook, get the word out!

Thanks to everyone in advance for supporting our high school's music program! (And, honestly, aren't the kids in that video totally awesome?)

I forgot to add, Hackensack has approximately 7000 votes to date but some schools have more than 25,000.  Please pass this information on to family and friends and remember to vote daily.

Hackensack High wins grant from GLEE contest

The Record

HACKENSACK Hackensack High School students won $10,000 for their music program with a video showing them singing Journeys Dont Stop Believin juxtaposed against images of aging school equipment, according to an announcement Thursday.

Pictures of a piano missing a key, a snare drum with a hole in it and a worn-looking electric guitar were interspersed with text explaining the music programs budget woes: including $8 million in total cuts to the school budget over the last two years and the estimated $26,000 cost to fix two Steinway pianos.

Talented students; aging equipment, one screen read.

The video was one of 73 winning submissions in the nationwide GLEE Give a Note Campaign, a contest sponsored by 20th Century Fox Television and named after the popular television program.

The students won 11,305 votes from viewers on the contest website, placing them in a pool of finalists from which they were selected for the second place prize. They were one of four New Jersey schools to place in the contest, which awarded grants of $10,000 to $50,000.
