Each year, Make Music Matter hosts a contest called My Song For Change, which invites Canadians 18 and over to submit a musical performance focusing on global issues that they face with other youth across the world. The winner will have his or her song and accompanying video produced in a professional recording studio alongside Sam Roberts and a Grammy Award-winning producer. Pretty sweet deal.
