There's a lot of uncertainty around the upcoming school year, but if there's one thing that you can count on if you're a teacher it's that CBC Music and MusiCounts Learn are here to support music in the school. 

That's why we're proud to present the first ever Canadian Music Playlist Challenge.  

This project-based initiative requires no singing or music instruments to complete, and students can participate whether working from home, or at school. 

The Playlist Challenge has two components: First, the free learning resource, or "lesson plan." This guide introduces students to themes of Canadian and Indigenous identity, and our musical heritage, as explored through the Juno Awards. 

The project culminates in a series of activities that teachers can use to build their classes' custom Canadian music playlist. The playlist should be a reflection of the unique character of your school, region and students' interests. Teachers can upload their class playlist to a special CBC website for all Canadians to enjoy.  

All schools that submit a playlist will be entered into a random draw for a chance to win one of 10 MusiCounts instrument grants for your school, each valued at $1,000.
