Kiwanis participates in statewide Talent Showcase

Thomasville-- For the first time, the Thomas County Kiwanis Club is participating in the organization's statewide "Talent Showcase" for high schoolers.

It kicks off Saturday afternoon at 1:40 at the Music and Drama Troupe Auditorium in Thomasville. Sophomores, juniors and seniors from every school in Thomasville and Thomas County are participating.

Since this is the first time the Thomas County branch is taking part in the event, mermbers say they had to limit the performances to music. Some students will be singing, and some will play instruments. Members say the students couldn't be better served.

The top three winners at the "Talent Showcase" will receive $100, $75, and $50, respectively. The Kiwanis Club will pay for whoever places first to attend the state competition in Atlanta. The winner of that gets a $3,500 scholarship.
