It takes a village to ensure our youth will become the best they can possibly be. With community organizations increasing, there hasn’t been a better time to chip in to help make the community a better place. An organization like Mentors In Motion, is being raved about across the country for saving trouble youth from desolate futures and putting them on the right path.

Mentors In Motion offers a variety of programs to aid students in finding their hidden talents and applying them to their education. One of the popular programs they offer is the music program. Students who participate in this program have had the opportunity to record and produce several inspiring songs to help motivate one another.

One of the most popular songs was the multiplication track that focused on how cool math is and encouraged students to open their minds to the subject.

In an effort to continue merging music with positive subjects, Mentors In Motion has created a songwriting competition.SLPS

On Monday, February 19, 2018, Mentors In Motion partnered with the Saint Louis Public School District to launch their 2018 songwriting competition.

The competition, which will conclude with a grand finale on May 11, at the Peabody Opera House, invites students from each SLPS high school to submit an original song highlighting positive aspects of their school and community. 

The first prize winner will receive a $5,000 scholarship to the college/university of their choice and a pair of fresh kicks for each graduating senior at their high school as they walk into their fresh futures!

An extraordinary program of immense potential, the Mentors In Motion 2018 Songwriting Competition aims to realign the future of children in St. Louis who have seemingly been left behind.  

A new solution to an age-old problem, Mentors In Motion is strengthening the community by mentoring youth in a safe place to dream, grow and aspire.

The deadline for song submissions is March 23, 2018
