A total of 11 students across 11 cities will be selected by the non-profit organization, Boys and Girls Club of America. Those chosen must reside in one the of the following US cities where The Carters have performed stages for their On the Run II tour: Atlanta, Orlando, Miami, Arlington, New Orleans, Houston, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Clara, and Seattle.
