DALLAS--Amateur songwriters from around the world can compete in the 20th Annual Song Contest hosted by the Dallas Songwriters Assoc. (DSA).

Winners last year came from Massachusetts, California, New Hampshire, Georgia, Texas, Oklahoma, Florida, Maryland, Virginia and North and South Carolina. Additional winners came from Canada, Portugal and the United Kingdom.

"The best way to appreciate the talent in this contest is to look to our 2008 grand prize winner, Mark Wayne Glasmire, who is a 2009 Grammy qualifier," said DSA President Steve Sullivan. "He's testimony to the level of talent in the DSA Song Contest."
