ELMHURST — The GRAMMY Foundation announced on March 28 that 10 schools nationwide have been selected as GRAMMY Signature Schools for 2013 and have been awarded cash grants totaling $56,000.

Last year, the York Community High School music program was honored as one of 125 GRAMMY Semifinalists. This year, under the leadership of Performing and Visual Arts Division Chairman Bill Riddle, York was one of three Gold finalists.

Created in 1998, the GRAMMY Signature Schools program recognizes top U.S. public high schools that are making an outstanding commitment to music education during an academic school year.

As a Gold school, York will receive $5,500.
