2018 & 2019 PeerPositivePOWER Challenge Winners:
Congratulations to The Music in Me Foundation International's PeerPositivePOWER Challenge winners--Friendship Charter School (Woodridge Campus), Leckie International School and Shepherd Elementary School. The PeerPositivePOWER Challenge is an inclusive opportunity for DC schools to express themselves through music, raise their school climate, reduce absenteeism, increase self-esteem, decrease bullying and receive positive reinforcement.
Here's How it Works:
Each school works collaboratively to create a song, rap or spoken word presentation that best exemplifies PeerPositivePOWER. Teams make a video recording of their work to be judged by the critically acclaimed artists in the music industry and the foundation. PeerPositivePOWER participants' videos are aired on DC Cable Television, giving students a chance to shine and reinforce their positive anti-bullying messages, as well as perform at The Kennedy Center, which is the Nation's Cultural Arts Center and world-class stage. ALL students attending the winning team's school will celebrate with a PeerPositivePOWER Pizza Party. In addition, all winning schools receive acknowledgment from DC Mayor Muriel Bowser.
