Here are the winners of the 2020 Canadian Music Playlist Challenge
Check out the winning classes from across the country
This year, COVID-19 has prompted conversations across the country about the role of music in the school curriculum. We are so impressed by the imagination and creativity that many music teachers displayed in trying to get music integrated into school programs.
CBC Music and MusiCounts Learn were pleased to come together to create a Canadian music learning resource for schools that could not allow in-person music-making. Thousands of students from classes across Canada participated in the Canadian Music Playlist Challenge this year, and it was a resounding success.
The project culminated in a series of activities that teachers could use to build their classes' custom Canadian music playlist. The playlist is a reflection of the unique character of a school, region and students' interests.
We are pleased to announce the 10 winners of this year's project. Each winning class will receive $1,000 in new musical instruments and equipment from MusiCounts. Congratulations!
