The kickoff to this year’s Youth Week locally was Clearwater’s Got Talent on Wednesday, May 1 at Clearwater Secondary School.

The evening’s performance began with MC Alex Arduini welcoming the standing room only audience and introducing the acts to follow. CSS hosted the event in the drama/auditorium room, which was perfect for such a night.

The acts were all good and I’m sure the judges had difficult decisions to make. Performances ranged from singing and beat box to skits and Native drumming. All were original and performers worked hard to show the best of their talents.

You’re all winners, by doing your best and having the courage to show it.

Most original performance, Chris Gouchie, beat box; best individual act, Austyn Busse, singer and guitarist; best group act, CSS Drama Club, skit.

 

Coordinator and Youth Week fundraiser supervisor Eleanor Collins said that a big thank you should to out to all the wonderful volunteers who helped in making this night possible for every one.
