The Kennedy Center is giving away more than 1,200 free tickets for the 2011-2012 season.

As part of its 40th birthday celebration, the Kennedy Center is giving away free tickets to each performance in its 2011-2012 season.

It's part of an effort to broaden the center's audience and to reach out to young people interested in the arts. In all, the Kennedy Center is giving away more than 1,200 free tickets. The online entry period begins today and runs through Monday, September 19. The winners will be selected in a random drawing.

The contest celebrates the 40th anniversary of the Kennedy Center's opening in 1971 and kicks off the MyTix program, which offers discounted, complimentary, and last-minute tickets to some performances.

The funding for the program comes from the Kennedy Center's Chairman, David Rubenstein.
