HOOK, LINE AND SING-A-LONG 2018
What a fantastic, high-quality range of entries we have had again this year. There were many, many songs that are worthy of nationwide sing-a-longs. The Judges would like to express their thanks to all the very talented students who entered, and the teachers and tutors who supported them.
All contestants will receive some NZ Music Commission momentos and some written feedback, congratulating you on your strengths and helping you develop your songwriting skills further. These will be posted to the music teacher at your school before the end of term. Additionally, all those below will receive our limited edition “Award Winners’ ” tote bag.
Our thanks to the sponsors of the competition, without whom it could not succeed; MusicWorks, MENZA and The New Zealand Music Commission.
