CBE Rap Battle Club

A Rap Battle Competition is coming to the Calgary Board of Education! Crescent Heights, Robert Thirsk, Joane Cardinal-Schubert, and Central Memorial High Schools will be competing in the first annual CBE Rap Battle in 2020, with more schools to be added to the roster in toe 2020/21 school year. 

The cost to implement this program in 4 schools is $3,500. This covers Rap Battle Club training sessions with local writers, performers, and hip-hop artists; venue cost for the final competition; and any material needed for the final performance.  All 4 schools are engaged in a friendly contest to earn bragging rights as the top fundraiser of the 2019/20 season, so support your school to get them to the number 1 spot.

Please make a gift today! Your gift will enhance student learning and development in visual arts, performing arts and language, as well as increasing their confidence and competence in communicating their ideas. It will also provide new ways for students to get engaged with current topics and get the most out of their education.

The Rap Battle Club competition will take place in April 2020, with club meetings officially beginning after the Holidays; students have until the end of December to raise the necessary funds for their program to allow them to compete in the April 2020 competition.

Tax receipts will be provided for donations greater than $20. Your contact details are required to generate an electronic tax receipt which will be sent to the email address that you provide.
