Your Sound - Your Lyrics - Your Song

Write songs yourself, tinker with texts, create compositions! SONGS - the songwriting competition for schoolchildren in cooperation with the Foundation for Education and Social Affairs of the Sparda Bank Baden-Württemberg entered its fourth round in 2019 and gave young songwriters the chance to be on the big stage with their song.

With their best song, participants could apply individually or in a band - or even in collaboration with their teachers and educators. The best ideas were rewarded with attractive prizes! Prize money totalling 10,000€ could be won for musical equipment for schools and youth centres. In addition, the winners will receive professional coaching from the Popakademie Baden-Württemberg and all singers participating in the finals will be invited to a one-day vocal camp with us at the Popakademie.

The SONGS Finale took place on May 3rd 2019 at the SpardaWelt Event Centre in Stuttgart. 15 finalists had qualified for the live show in the competition year 2018/19 and thus got the opportunity to perform their SONGS live in front of our jury and a large audience.

In 2020 SONGS will be five years old - be curious!

Here’s a look at the winner in 2019:
