Announcing the Grateful Ed Concert Review Contest!

Do you like the look of the site you’re reading this on? You may have noticed that it’s now very different, compared to just a few weeks ago. That’s right. Our Grateful Ed blog has been redesigned. And to celebrate, we’re also launching our Concert Review Contest!

We may be hard-working education advocates, but we know how important it is to take time to kick back and relax. We especially love to do that through live music—that’s the culture Grateful Ed was founded on. Now, you can easily find our dedicated space for concert reviews.

Concert review submissions are always open, and we’ll never get tired of hearing about cool bands and fantastic shows from our fellow education champions. But this time, we want to offer something back. From now until August 14th, your concert review submission counts as an entry for a chance to win a coveted prize: Grateful Ed t-shirt!

Concert Review Contest Rules

This contest kicks off today, and the rules are simple to follow:

  1. Concert review submissions must be for concerts from 2019.
  2. Multiple submissions of concert reviews count as multiple entries. The more concert reviews you submit, the higher chance you have to win.
  3. Concert review submissions must be at least 250 words, and include at least one photo.

If you’re having trouble figuring out how to write your concert review, please check out our past concert reviews for inspiration. Submissions are due by August 14th, and one winner will be randomly selected to receive a Grateful Ed shirt (as pictured below).

Happy writing—we can’t wait to read your concert reviews!

Submit your questions or concert reviews to by August 14th.
