This article investigates MySchoolAct (MSA),an online music competition created exclusively for Australian high school students.

MSA as a social networking platform, creates opportunities for young musicians to showcase their original music and expand their fanbase. From an education perspective, MSA hands ownership of the site to the user, and in this sense empowers young people to engage in meaningful knowledge exchange.
