Sistema Toronto has entered the Aviva Community Fund competition, which is donating a total of $1-million to be shared by charities and community groups across Canada. The after-school music program inspired by the work of Eighth Glenn Gould Prize winner Dr. José Antonio Abreu could win as much as $150,000 for its program.  Here's how you can help.

  • You get 15 votes per round, but you can only vote for Sistema Toronto once a day
  • If Sistema Toronto wins the qualifying round, they make it to the semi-finals; otherwise they go to the next qualifying round
  • Semi-final voting runs from December 2 to 11, with the top 30 ideas moving on to the final judging phase
  • Winners are announced January 28, 2014.  Finalists receive $5000.  Grand prize is $150,000.
