In recognition of the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812, which inspired Francis Scott Key's writing of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” is hosting a contest in search of the area’s best rendition of our national anthem.

How does it work?

Singers of all ages are invited submit videos of themselves singing the national anthem. Our readers will vote for their favorites and a panel of editors at The Day will narrow those semifinalists down to two winners - one child and one adult.

The judges:
Rick Koster - The Day's music writer/blogger
Carl Franklin - New London Musician/Producer
Lee Elci - Talk show host at 94.9 and former professional baseball player

The winners will perform at a Connecticut Tigers baseball game at Dodd Stadium (children's winner - date to be determined) and at Sailfest 2012 in New London (adult winner - Saturday, July 7).

Entrants should sing the first verse with traditional lyrics.

Did you know?

The song is taken from a longer poem called “The Defence of Fort Henry,” written by Key, a lawyer, in 1814. It was declared the national anthem by congressional resolution on March 3, 1931.
