GM to sponsor CTV’s Juno Awards for eighth year
Toronto, Ontario – For the eighth consecutive year, General Motors of Canada will sponsor the Juno Awards telecast. The show will be on the CTV network, Sunday April 6 from the Corel Centre in Ottawa.
“We offer sincere congratulations to all the talented artists who are nominated to receive 2003 Juno Awards,” said Brian Bussiere, manager of corporate advertising for GM of Canada.
“In conjunction with the presentation of the Junos, ten talented Canadian music students will be awarded General Motors “High Note” Bursaries of $1,000 each, bringing to 80 the number of bursaries awarded since GM began this program in conjunction with its Juno sponsorship.”
Selection of the students who receive the bursaries is based on overall music performance, with consideration being given to the graduating student the school feels will most benefit from the financial reward.
“Winners must also have demonstrated a professional attitude, along with great potential to succeed within the music industry as well as having shown a consistent dedication to improvement and excellence in their work,” Bussiere said.
“General Motors ‘High Note’ Bursary winners, who are chosen by faculty members or appointed scholarship committees at ten different post-secondary music schools in various parts of Canada, must also have reached and maintained a satisfactory level of scholastic ability,” he said.
