“Park Starzz: Youth Talent Competition”

Howery House Productions has joined forces with the City of Houston Parks and Recreation Department to provide some neighborhood fun. They will co-sponsor a series of youth talent shows in select park community centers throughout the City. The first of 10 preliminary contests will take place on September 8, at Sharpstown Community Center, in Southwest Houston. Entry forms can be picked up at the community centers and will be available online by mid-September.

The Youth Performance Foundation, a non-profit pro-youth organization will host and emcee the shows and bring a lot of enthusiasm to the events. The range of competition is for youth, separated by two age groups, 8-12 (Juniors) and 13-18 (Seniors). There is no entry fee to compete and no admission cost; it’s free. Prizes include cash ($250 First Place) and second place trophies, in each division. All winners will be eligible to compete at the All-City Finals in December.
