Youth for Change looking for local student talent

LIMA — A new youth program is looking for local student talent to participate in its community-wide show organized to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and kick-off “Youth for Change.”

To be held in Crouse Hall from noon to 2 p.m. Jan. 15, the virtual event is looking to highlight the artistic skills of area youth by putting them on stage and live-streaming their talents to other area schools. To do so, event organizers are now looking for such students (grades 6 through 12) willing to show off their artistic skills in voice, dance, acting, spoken word, playing music, painting, sculpture, visual arts, writing and film-making.

Those involved may also be chosen to participate in the larger Youth for Change program, which gives students a chance to be mentored by professionals in their chosen artistic field.

To be considered, students can submit a one to two-minute video audition showcasing their talents to by Friday.
