BOSTON (AP) - Taylor Swift is giving $10,000 and concert tickets to a Boston school for the deaf after a prank during an online contest promising an on-campus performance by the Grammy-winning singer.

Horace Mann School for the Deaf was disqualified from the contest because many of the votes were from pranksters who thought it would be funny for a school for the deaf to win tickets to a live concert.

Instead, Swift and contest sponsors will donate a combined $50,000 to the school, and VH1's Save the Music program will donate $10,000 in musical instruments.

Swift says every student at the K-12 school will receive a ticket to her next local concert.

Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, Calif., won the on-campus concert and a $10,000 grant to its music department.
