NEW YORK (AP) - The maker of the “Glee” DVDs is donating $1 million to school arts programs across the country.

Twentieth Century Fox Entertainment announced the donation Friday, saying it will work with the National Association for Music Education to get the money to schools. The company says 73 schools will receive grants ranging from $10,000 to $50,000.

Fox’s popular series is centered on a high school singing group.

Eligible high schools are being asked to submit videos about why their schools deserve a grant. There will be a public vote to winnow the competition and education association officials will make the final vote.

Twentieth Century Fox is releasing a DVD and Blu-ray of the “Glee” second season next week.
