The contest has generated thousands of Florida songs, causing both the songwriter
and the audience to become more aware of the history, environment, and characters of Florida. The songs can are sad, funny, inspiring, emotional and historical. The Will McLean Foundation for Florida Heritage in Music has archived all the songs, which will eventually be housed in the McLean Collection at the College of Central Florida in Ocala.
The Will Mclean song contest has brought some fine songwriters to us. The contest is open to all. Although most entries come from Florida, songwriters everywhere are encouraged to submit entries. The first place winner and 2nd and 3rd place finishers are featured at the annual Will McLean Festival.
The first in a series of CDs presenting finalists in the
annual song contest
