BROOKLYN - P.S. 31 is a top school for academics, but its arts programs have been cut dramatically due to budget cuts. Students are hoping to combat the cuts through a contest they've entered that would bring them a $50,000 prize. The Glee Give A Note contest would help bring music programs to the school.
