Teachers and parents give students the building blocks they need to learn and grow, but sometimes they can use a little outside help. As school budgets nationwide continue to shrink, The Clorox Company’s Power A Bright Future grant program steps in to help fund new or ongoing programs that allow children to play, create and explore.

After a competitive national nomination period, now it is time for our community to show its support. Help the Dillard Center for the Arts Jazz Ensemble win up to $50,000 by casting votes starting Nov. 12, 2012!

From Nov. 12, 2012 through Dec. 12, 2012 our community can visit to vote once a day for our nationally ranked music program that has been delighting our community for years.  Neighbors, friends and family can also vote for us right from their phones via text message.  

The program that receives the highest number of votes will be awarded the $50,000 grand-prize grant, and the next top vote-getters in the Play, Create and Explore categories respectively will each be awarded a $25,000 grant. Clorox’s judging panel, will select three additional lucky schools, one in each category, to win a $25,000 judge’s choice grant.

Dillard Center for the Arts Jazz Ensemble can be one of only seven schools nationwide to win a grant, and you can help push our school to the top. We hope you’ll be able to share our school’s story with your readers to make them aware of our need. 

I encourage you to visit for more details and official rules. We can also put you in touch with our musical director Christopher Dorsey to provide firsthand information on Dillard Jazz’s story and how the grant will impact the students. If you are interested in scheduling an interview, we can provide video & still photo opportunities for you.
