Judged By Russell Simmons & Rosario Dawson "#RaiseUp" is a Spoken Word & Hip Hop Contest Taking on the Drop Out Crisis.
Here's More about the contest:
Youth 15-22 years old are invited to submit their original raps and poems about the drop out crisis in American High Schools. Poems and raps can be submitted by one person (individual) or by a group. 5 individual poems/raps will be chosen as our winners, and each person will receive a $5,000 educational scholarship and a trip to Washington DC to perform at the Kennedy Center on September 28 as part of a huge show around this issue. One group poem/rap will also be selected to receive a $2,500 award. Scholarships are provided courtesy of the Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation.Here is the link to vote for me: http://www.raiseupproject.org/contest-entries/kearah-armonie/
Finalists will be selected through a three-round process in which the American public and special guest judges – including Rosario Dawson and Russell Simmons – will vote. After the event at the Kennedy Center, the participants in The Raise Up Project have an opportunity to be featured in a National Public Radio series that will air in in late 2014.
