Hey there budding songwriters and musicians!

The Canadian Auto Workers union is turning 25 this year and we want you to use your talents to write a song, commemorating this special anniversary.  Songs will be judged on the criteria below and the winners* will be invited to perform the song at the CAW Joint Council in Montreal, August 27-29, 2010.

Judging criteria:

- relevance to the CAW and its history
- diversity
- artistic quality

We encourage entrants from a diversity of backgrounds, representative of our ever-changing union.  All musicians/applicants must be CAW members or retirees.

Shortlisted entries will be uploaded to YouTube after July 1 for voting via the CAW national website. The submission deadline is July 1, 2010.

Entries should be submitted by email as mpegs or wmv files only.  Please contact Shannon Devine, Director of Communications at with any questions.

*There will be one English winning group and one French winning group.

Good luck!
