Submit your Columbus-inspired song to win prizes

No, that's not a reference to the end of the Mayan calendar, but rather to the deadline for Celebrate Columbus In Song, a bicentennial contest that's asking residents to submit original recorded music inspired by our fair city. Ten winners get their music on a compilation CD plus $500, professional recording time and a chance to perform at city events throughout 2012. Entrants must submit their music through Soundcloud by January 31. For more info, check out the contest's official site, song.200columbus.com, or check the Facebook page.
