Local Music Students Compete for $36,000 in Prizes

The event will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Myron Leavitt Middle School, 4701 Quadrel St., and admission is free.

Middle school and high school musical groups submitted applications and performance video for the contest for online evaluation and public voting. The four middle school and four high school groups receiving the most votes were invited to perform on Saturday.

Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets or low folding chairs to be more comfortable during the event. Local Wal-Mart and Sam's Club stores sponsored the prize money for the competition.
