Blue Man Group student competition
KUSI's Joe Lizura was at Marshall Middle School where their students are competing in the Blue Man Groups Invent an Instrument National Program contest.
Blue Man Group is proud to announce the launch of its Invent an Instrument National Program in partnership with education leader Scholastic. A unique combination of education, entertainment, and environmentalism, the Invent an Instrument National Program is a creative contest that fuses music, arts, and innovation with math and science, inviting students in grades 5-9 to build instruments out of existing objects.
Blue Man Group is famed for its unique, homemade instruments, and in the Invent an Instrument Program, students nationwide will compete to build a new instrument for use in a performance by Blue Man Group. The contest winner, selected by a panel of Celebrity Judges, will be flown to New York City, meet the Blue Man Group founders, and see the Blue Man Group show at the Astor Place Theater. A $5000 scholarship prize will also go to both the winning student and the winning student's school. Finally, Blue Man Group will create an original composition using the winner's instrument.
