Students who are part of the William S. Hart Union High School District’s “Yes I Can” program are making a final push for people to vote so that it can receive a $50,000 grant for its annual Summer Meltdown concert.

The students producing the ninth annual Summer Meltdown Concert are currently competing for a $50,000 grant from Pepsi to help plan, produce and promote the all-day festival, scheduled for May 2012.

Yes I Can is a nonprofit program made up of students with and without disabilities who work together throughout the school year to put on the Summer Meltdown concert.

The Pepsi Refresh Project will give the award to the top 10 groups with the greatest number of votes. Summer Meltdown advanced through the rankings from 90 to 19 in just a little more than a week, and seek to reach the top 10 by Dec. 31.

“The students would like to be able to bring the biggest artists to perform for them, their peers and the entire SCV community,” said Bret Lieberman, Yes I Can program director at Canyon High School and Summer Meltdown’s executive producer since its inception. “We can only do this with the public’s help. We have less than month to make it happen.”

The students would like to take their concert to the next level this year and book artists such as Drake, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Green Day, Lady Gaga, Incubus, Lil Wayne and Pink.
