Topic: JUST DO IT
Music Cares has partnered with Facing Addiction to offer cash prizes to aspiring composers. Go to:

This is how they phrase it:
"If you’re a musician between the ages of 14-18, you’re invited to submit an original piece of music that celebrates life above the influence or brings attention to the real-life consequences of substance abuse. 1st place winners receive tickets to the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards® and related events! Awards also include tickets to Vans Warped Tour, cash and other prizes!."
Good luck. This is what Benjamin Franklin said: "Nothing ventured, nothing gained."
