iHEARTRADIO and student hub CHEGG have launched a social media contest to choose an American college or high school campus to host musical artists MACKLEMORE AND RYAN LEWIS for an exclusive classroom takeover event. Beginning today, high school and college students can vote for their school to have the duo take over one of their classrooms with a live crash-course and Q&A session on their experiences in the music and entertainment industries. To emphasize key teaching points, they will discuss the background and creation process of a selection of their songs, including their new single.
CHEGG will also award the winning school a $10,000 grant for their music department from CHEGG's DAVID B. GOLDBERG MUSIC SCHOLARSHIP fund.
"Music101 powered by iHEARTRADIO is an opportunity for MACKLEMORE AND RYAN LEWIS to come together with fans in a uniquely intimate setting and share their love of music and education," MACKLEMORE LLC Manager ZACH QUILLEN said. "Before attending college himself, MACKLEMORE spent time working in a juvenile detention hall where he also had the opportunity to teach and share his love for music with the youth; he found a passion for mentorship, and Music101 is an important outlet to continue sharing his experiences with others."
