2018 SevenDays® Songwriting Competition

RRACE and Faith Always Wins are looking for songwriters ages 14 – 21 to compose songs around the subject of racial, religious, and/or cultural equality and acceptance.

Following the tragic events that took place in April 2014 at the Jewish Community Campus and Village Shalom, two foundations were created: RRACE (Racial and Religious Acceptance and Cultural Equality) and Faith Always Wins. The hope of these two organizations is for this competition to promote understanding tolerance and acceptance through the arts, starting with this songwriting competition.

Deadline for song submissions is February 15, 2018.

Winners will be announced at the SevenDays Kick Off April 10, 2018.

Submissions for the 2018 competition are now closed.
