WASHINGTON - The bands are striking up a vote.

Hoping to win a chunk of $1 million in prize money to help struggling music programs, several area schools have submitted videos hoping to attract votes.

The competition, called Give A Note, is a partnership through the television show "Glee" to support music education. It hopes the prize money will ultimately help in small ways to spare music programs from the budget-cutting knife.

The following local music programs have submitted videos:

  • Oxon Hill Middle School (Prince George's County, Md.)

  • D.C. Scholars Stanton Elementary (Washington, D.C.)

  • Stuart-Hobson Middle School (Washington, D.C.)

  • Montgomery Blair High School (Montgomery County, Md.)

  • Godwin Middle School (Prince William County, Va.)

Voting is open until Nov. 7. Visit the program's website to vote for a local school.
