R. B. Wright elementary is full of Glee


When school's face budget issues, usually music programs are first to be cut. But "Glee's give a note" contest hopes to do something about it.

They plan to award 1 million to music programs across the country.  And R. B. Wright Elementary says they're the wright one's to win. 

In chapel once a week they use music to teach history, math and language. Mackenzie Yates is a fifth grader who likes country and Taylor swift. 

While Sam Chambers well he just loves pizza.  "Tuesday and Wednesday I got pizza love," he said. 

He and the rest of his classmates would also love to win $50,000 grand. "We would get to build a new stage along with new music equipment," said Yates.  

"Of course I have big dreams, maybe we could win 50,000 and build a stage or a coliseum," said Music Teacher Ingrid Wingate. 

They hope to hit the right note in "Glee's give a note" contest. It's sponsored by Fox, the creator of Glee, and the National Association for Music education. "They just took off with it and it came together which makes me excited," said Wingate. 

Excitement comes to the forefront in chapel. It's a 50 year-old tradition where everyone comes together once a week for a play/musical. "We're trying to keep that tradition strong," she said. 

So far so good, but now they need your vote to win. Hopefully the WRIGHT ONES will but if they don't, "The music goes on," said Wingate. 

November 7th is the last day to vote. You can only vote once a day per IP address. They stand a chance to win $600 to 50,000 from a video that was submitted.
