Taylor Swift will perform an intimate acoustic concert for a winning college or high school this fall as part of VH1’s VH1 Storytellers series. Presented by Chegg and Papa John’s, in partnership with COVERGIRL and American Greetings, VH1 Storytellers: Taylor Swift will air on VH1 on Sunday, November 11 at 6 p.m. ET/PT.

The contest is open to accredited colleges and high schools in the 48 continental U.S. states and runs through September 23. Students can vote for their school and find more information at www.taylorswiftoncampus.com.

“Taylor Swift is not only a talented musician, but is also an amazing role model for our nation’s students,” Dan Rosensweig, President and CEO of Chegg, said. ”Chegg’s mission is to deliver value to students so we’re thrilled to partner with Taylor to bring a unique and intimate concert to her fans at one lucky school as well as provide music grants to five deserving schools through our Chegg for Good program.” 

The top five schools with the most votes at the end of the contest will each receive a $10,000 grant for their music department from Taylor Swift and Chegg’s philanthropic program, Chegg for Good.
