David B. Goldberg $5,000 Scholarship

Videos will be judged on their creativity and how well they demonstrate your work in music production, creation, or innovation.
Please make sure your Instagram or YouTube posts are set to “Public,” so we can view the videos.
For any questions please email: scholarships@chegg.com
How to Apply

Support comes in many forms

Many of you may not realize how important it is to have not only volunteer support but monetary support for our vocal music program. We appreciate our school administration’s support of our choir program, but even with their unequivocal support, we recognize that the funds available through the high school are limited and can only be stretched so far.  Costs associated with the purchase of sheet music, supplies, and participation in special events increase every year. Our booster club will continue to provide the much needed support and we would appreciate your help in this endeavor.
