A campaign created in the name of Fox’s "Glee" announced the winners of grants totaling $1 million, Entertainment Weekly reports.

The "’Glee’ Give a Note” initiative donated grants ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 to 73 schools nationwide to help rescue their struggling music programs, the story says.

The National Association for Music Education, Twentieth Century Fox Television and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment announced the awards.

In September, schools submitted videos that were then posted online for the public to vote on the most worthy entries. More than a million votes were cast to help the judging panel pick the winning schools.

Three schools received the top prize of $50,000: Phil Campbell High School in Alabama, P.S. 48 Joseph R. Drake in Bronx, N.Y., and Clark Montessori in Cincinnati.
