The winning song will also receive a live launch, with the winning student’s school also to receive €1000 worth of audio recording gear for their music/communications department from Big Bear Sound Limited.
There is also the opportunity to win a €500 voucher for musical equipment for the winning student(s) from The Piano Centre Monaghan and Cavan Institute.
