Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Announces Music Contest

In partnership with the GRAMMY Museum, Robert F. Kennedy is inviting student song-writers to submit their original songs that take a stand against human rights abuses. The winner of the contest will participate in a GRAMMY related event. 

Songs can focus on a local, national, or international human rights abuse. The format is open to any genre of music, and submissions will be judged by a panel of GRAMMY nominated musicians as well as human rights activists. 

In a statement on their website, the organization says that, "using their own voices and perspectives, students can create meaningful change on pressing issues such as sexual harassment and assault, bullying, police brutality and other important topics related to social justice."

Submissions are due May 12.
