WELCOME TO HIT LIKE A GIRL X • WINNERS ANNOUNCED ON MAY 14!

To All Hit Like A Girl X Participants:

Thank-you doesn’t even begin to express how much we appreciate everyone who entered the contest this year. In fact, it has been an honor to watch the phenomenal growth of this community over the past 10 years. And we’re not just talking about the explosion of female and gender-expansive people who play drums and make beats. The rising levels of skill, support, musicianship and mutual respect have been off-the-charts, as well.

Although not everyone can be a winner in this contest, everyone can be proud of the part they’ve played in this revolution. Through your drumming each of you has made an impact that is changing the world step by step, beat by beat and day by day.
