Calling All Musicians! Celebrate The 50th Anniversary Of PA's Environmental Rights Amendment With Your Original Song!

PA Parks and Forests Foundation is now accepting entries to a unique contest to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Environmental Rights Amendment to Pennsylvania’s constitution.

"The people have a right to clean air, pure water, and to the preservation of the natural, scenic, historic and esthetic values of the environment. Pennsylvania’s public natural resources are the common property of all the people, including generations yet to come. As trustee of these resources, the Commonwealth shall conserve and maintain them for the benefit of all the people."  -- Article I, Section 27

Songwriters from across the state are invited to submit a two to three minute original song expressing your interpretation of what the environment and the amendment mean to you.

All musical genres are welcome, as are submissions by all ages.

Two prizes will be awarded.   An overall grand prize wins $250; a youth entry (written by a songwriter under the age of 18) will be awarded $100.

Click Here for all the details.  The deadline for entries is August 1.
