It’s not a fairy tale it’s true! Hobart and William Smith have a chance to have Taylor Swift perform live on campus and to win $10,000 for the music department.
Chegg, Inc. and Papa John’s Pizza have announced a new contest for high schools, colleges, and universities of any size in the 48 contiguous states which might seem too good to be true for many fans of country pop idol. From now until Sept. 23, friends, students, alums, staff and faculty can vote for the institution where Swift will perform. The winning school will receive a free concert while the top five schools will receive a $10,000 grant for their music departments.

The winner of the contest will be announced on the week of Oct. 5, and Taylor Swift will perform in an area at or near the winning school on the week of Oct. 15.
