Horowhenua Chronicle - - NEWS -

Young lo­cal per­form­ers have un­til Sun­day, Novem­ber 4 to reg­is­ter an act for Horowhenua’s Got Tal­ent, an an­nual tal­ent quest for young peo­ple aged be­tween 12 and 24 years.

Horowhenua District Council com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment ad­viser So­phie Par­rant said the com­pe­ti­tion gives young peo­ple a chance to show­case their tal­ents in a fun, sup­port­ive way.

“It’s an awe­some com­mu­nity event for young lo­cal singers, dancers, bands, mu­si­cians and other young per­form­ers with a tal­ent to share on stage,” Ms Par­rant said.

There are two cat­e­gories, Solo and Group, with prizes for the first, sec­ond and third place win­ners in each cat­e­gory. Prizes in­clude $200 for the best group per­for­mance and $150 for the best solo per­for­mance.

Ms Par­rant said hold­ing an an­nual tal­ent quest was part of Horowhenua District Council’s com­mit­ment to mak­ing Horowhenua a place full of vi­brant events and ac­tiv­i­ties, which is one of the out­comes iden­ti­fied in the council’s Arts, Cul­ture and Her­itage Plan and its Youth Ac­tion Plan.

■ Horowhenua’s Got Tal­ent will be held at 7pm on Satur­day, Novem­ber 10 in Main Space, Te Tak­ere­tanga o Kura-hau-po¯, and is free to en­ter and at­tend.
