Teachers, are you ready to sing? The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) invites you to enter its STEAM Song Teacher Competition. Interested educators can participate by creating a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) song or music video on any topic as long as it is connected to at least one science, technology, engineering, or math standard. Submissions should also include a separate document with the title of the song, the song lyrics, the targeted grade level and/or subject, and the standard(s) on which the song is based. To be eligible to win, applicants must teach in the United States, a US Territory, or a DoDEA school. The music videos will be scored using a rubric freely downloadable from the ORISE website. Three teachers will each win an iPad and a pair of Raycon wireless earbuds.
Deadline: Teachers’ original STEAM songs should be submitted online by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on September 30, 2022. Winners will be announced in late October.
Classics for Kids Foundation (CFKF) was formed in 1998 in response to the decline of music performance education programs for young people. The foundation’s mission is to support young people and the programs that serve them by offering matching grants for fine stringed instruments.
Sponsored by The National Foundation for the Advancement of Artists, YoungArts identifies exceptional young artists, amplifies their potential, and invests in their lifelong creative freedom. YoungArts is among the only organizations in the United States that support artists across 10 disciplines at all stages of development, beginning with the critical moment when they decide to pursue a life in the arts and continuing throughout their careers.
