Your online votes can once again help Paulding students bring home a large sum of money.
The Paulding County High School Chorus program is one of 22 entries from Georgia in Rack Room Shoes’ “Gift of Music” video contest. The contest had public, private and parochial schools submitting videos of students performing one of five Christmas holiday songs.
At stake for the chorus program is one of four $15,000 music grants that will be awarded to the four entries with the most online votes.
PCHS chorus members performed “O Christmas Tree” for their contest submission. A YouTube video of it is attached to this article. As of early Thursday, the video had nearly 300 views on YouTube.
Those who visit the contest website can see all the entries and then cast their vote for their favorite. Voting runs until Friday, Jan. 11, at 9 p.m. EST, and those who visit the site may vote once per day.
On or about Jan. 18, the store chain will award four grand prizes, each consisting of a $15,000 music grant, an Apple iPod Touch, a $500 iTunes gift card and a set of speakers.
Should the PCHS chorus program win one of the four grants, it would be at least the third contest win for Paulding County Schools within the past month. The district will soon receive $100,000 from Patch after the Felix home in Dallas earned the most online votes nationwide in the 2012 Deck the House contest that ended Dec. 28. And less than two weeks earlier, the “Spirit of South Paulding” high school marching band won $5,000 for their music performance submitted to an Atlanta-based radio show’s contest.
