All students are welcome to register to compete for any of the 3 divisions; Rap/Hip-hop, Singer-songwriter, or Bands. Students will have 15 minutes to display their talents for the audience and the three judges that will be present. The winner will be chosen based off a combination of voting and feedback from the judges.
