Through our sponsorship of the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards and partnership with the Give a Note Foundation’s Music in Our Schools tour, American Girl has welcomed the opportunity to help make a difference in the lives of student musicians, music educators, and their communities. Read on to learn more about the ways AG is working to champion music, learning, play, and service!

2017 Radio Disney Music Awards


American Girl is committed to celebrating each girl’s inner star, so what better way to celebrate than joining RDMA’s star-studded, family-friendly fun? As a sponsor of the 2017 RDMA, American Girl continues to inspire confidence, creativity, and connection among girls—in this case, through musical performance and a shared, family-friendly voting/viewing experience that honors artists and everyday heroes whose work has a positive impact on people’s lives.

During this year’s event, the RDMA will highlight the importance of music, pay tribute to the heroes that bring music into our children’s lives, and feature American Girl as a proud partner in that work. It's a celebration of music that you and your family won’t want to miss!

Music in Our Schools


Give a Note Foundation has awarded more than $1.2 million in grants and scholarships since its inception in 2011 ( As part of its mission to offer funding and support for music education, Give a Note, in partnership with Disney, launched their Music in Our Schools tour in 2014—a month-long celebration of schools’ music education programs. As part of the National Association for Music Education’s annual Music in Our Schools Month (MIOSM), the Music in Our Schools tour travels the country to award grants, host concert events, provide resources, and raise awareness about the importance of music education.

This year, American Girl was delighted to present a check to the Give a Note Foundation on the road in Salina, KS during the Music in Our Schools tour. The Music in Our Schools tour will be recognized at the 2017 RDMA, where you can watch American Girl’s involvement with the program.

Tenney Grant


Tenney’s story shines a brilliant light on the dynamic, transformative power of music. Through her dedication to her craft, Tenney not only finds inner strength and a means of authentic self-expression, she also shows us how music has the ability to bring people together and be a force for good. Tenney, Tenney in the Key of Friendship, and Tenney Shares the Stage (available in late April 2017) remind all of us what music means to people, and what people mean to each other.

Disney Channel will air the two-hour special,
“Disney Channel Presents the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards,”
on Sunday, April 30, 2017 beginning at 7 p.m.

Your family can also tune in or stream Radio Disney’s extended broadcast and catch highlights across multiple Disney-branded platforms. Watch with your girl and be sure to look for American Girl during a special moment in the show!
