The contest is presented through a partnership with PVBLIC Foudnation, an in-kind grant making organization that harnesses the power of unused media assets to drive social change. An aggregator of media across all platforms, they works strategically to pair media space with key non-profit organizations at the local, national and global levels. Utilizing existing and emerging technologies, PVBLIC media grants increase awareness around important causes and help non-profits amplify their message.

Founded by Dan Cohen, a Long Island volunteer, social worker and former Department of Education consultant, Music & Memory began in 2008 when Cohen distributed 200 iPods in four New York City facilities and observed that the residents experienced increased socialization and engagement after listening to the songs of their youth. The efforts have spread to more than 50 nursing homes across the US. Music & Memory is proud to have support from terrific artists like Kenny Chesney, who make these moments possible for the elderly through the power of good music.
