STEP UP! Frederick Student Songwriting Contest

Event Details

This event finished on 15 February 2020

The 2019-2020 STEP UP! Frederick Student Songwriting Contest offers thousands of dollars worth of prizes. If you are a Frederick County middle or high schooler, you’ve got nothing to lose and lots to gain to submit your original song.

Think about a subject that meets the song subject criteria: someone or group who has performed an act of courage and suffered in the process or performed an act of inspiration born of tragedy, whose actions resulted in significant, positive change BETWEEN 1970 AND TODAY.

To help you, STEP UP! Frederick is offering 3 free teen songwriting workshops lead by award-winning songwriter Andrew McKnight. Attend as many as you can and be sure to secure your spot. Space is limited so secure yours: RSVP to with your name, phone number, school, and grade.
