Third for teens at show

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

A team of six Mata­mata teenagers and two Starfish staff en­tered the Top Town com­pe­ti­tion in Mor­rinsville last Satur­day.

They com­peted in six game show style events with eleven other teams from across Mata­mata and Pi­ako.

Team mem­ber Jo McNaughton said they en­tered for a bit of fun and were thrilled to take out third place in the so­cial di­vi­sion.

Top Town was part of a district wide ini­tia­tive to pro­vide more ac­tiv­i­ties for youth.

Starfish hosted the first event, a mas­quer­ade ball, in Mata­mata last De­cem­ber.

Te Aroha is or­gan­is­ing the next event, the Yes Fac­tor, which will take place on April 6 at the Te Aroha Do­main.

Au­di­tions for Mata­mata will be held at Starfish on Satur­day, March 23, from 9am till mid­day.

The fi­nal­ists from Mata­mata will go on to com­pete in Te Aroha for the fi­nal Yes Fac­tor event with a prize pool of $1200. The com­pe­ti­tion is open to mu­sic, dance and va­ri­ety acts. Or­gan­is­ers en­cour­age young peo­ple to en­ter.
