Write an anthem to mobilize giant crowds of our partner movements in-person or online in 2020—something universal, inspiring and easy to learn.
Write original words and melody, rap, chant or combination. Consider claps and foot stomps.
Minimal instruments, no political figures or legislation, just musical fire.
See the rules before getting started or submitting an already written song.
OPEN UNTIL JUNE 30
This is all about testing the waters for a movement-ready anthem that will be sung at rallies and marches without instruments.
Record a primary, vocals only or minimal instrumentation version of your song from a phone or professional setup to demonstrate its ability to be performed at public gatherings with no amplification.
If there is an existing studio version, you can submit it as a secondary submission.
Suggestions for home recording coming soon.

How about a warmup challenge.
Submit 4 bars* of singing, rap, poetry, stepping via Instagram & TikTok with #4barsforgood challenge** and tag your friends.
We'll make some sweet lyric videos for the most popular picks.
*4 bars = 4 measures, or two 8 counts for the dancers out there.
**Same writing guidelines as the main 2020 Challenge: universal, inspiring and easy to learn. Check out the write section of the Rules for more details.
