We are happy to provide your students with the opportunity to win tickets to the performance of  Heart and Lights at Radio City Music Hall on April 11, 2014 at 11 AM.  Posters to publicize the contest should be arriving at your school in the next day or two if not already.  (Note:  while this date does not conflict with the administration of the NYS ELA test, it may conflict with your scoring schedule.)

Six students may win a set of 4 tickets along with a backstage tour of Radio City Music Hall.  The grand prize winner’s class will win tickets to the performance.  The cost of transportation is not included.

This contest will be conducted in accordance with the rules, guidelines and criteria of the Christmas essay contest.  The show will celebrate New York City and will also include the world renowned Radio City Rockettes.

Please read the contest rules carefully as they contain important information.  The first round of judging should take place at your school between March 6th and March 13, 2014 with the top three essays from your school arriving at the Office of the Superintendent on or before March 21, 2014.

The winners will be notified no later than March 24, 2014.
