New York, New York (PRWEB) October 07, 2014
Today, platinum recording artist Jason Derulo and national non-profit Get Schooled announced a partnership to promote and engage students through the “Talk to Jason Tour”. Millions of Jason’s fans are closely following his national tour with Becky G. kicking off this month. The tour will take them to 13 cities across the east coast. Get Schooled is going to test students’ knowledge of the artists, their connection to their tour stops and the significance of those cities in our country’s history. Participating students have a chance to win Jason Derulo swag, concert tickets, a private video message from tour-mate Becky G. and a meet and greet with Jason himself at one of his final tour stops.
“We captured America’s attention this summer with two #1 songs, and we want to use that inspiration to capture America’s attention on something equally important, education,“ said Jason Derulo. “I am excited to partner with Get Schooled because they know how to inspire young people.”
Beginning October 7, students can go to http://www.getschooled.com and engage with an interactive map highlighting tour stops on Jason’s “Talk Dirty to Me” Tour. For each stop, students can answer questions about the city (e.g. At its peak, how many people lived in Detroit, MI?), and earn points for rewards and recognition. One lucky fan will win two tickets to one of Jason’s final tour stop and have the opportunity to meet Jason himself.
“Getting a great education and learning how to think critically has never been more important," said Marie Groark, Executive Director of Get Schooled. “Get Schooled is excited to partner with an incredibly talented artist who can share his passion for learning and his work ethic to our students.”
