The Sweetwater Kiwanis Club will once again be sponsoring Star Search for Sweetwater schools. Each school in Sweetwater holds an individual contest at their school and a certain number of acts are picked for the Star Search final competition in January. Proceeds from the Star Search finals go towards awards for the A's R Us program at the end of each school year. This year's Star Search schedule is as follows:
â€¢ Monday, Dec. 6, 3:30 p.m., Sweetwater High School;
â€¢ Tuesday, Dec. 7, 1:15 p.m. East Ridge Elementary;
â€¢ Thursday, Dec. 9, 4 p.m. Sweetwater Middle School;
â€¢ Saturday, Jan. 22, Star Search Final Competition.
Last yearâ€™s Star Search winners are asked to contact Billie Berry at 864-6924 to get on the practice schedule for the day of the finals.
The competition at Southeast Elementary School took place on Friday, Dec. 3, 2010. Those advancing to the finals will be T.J. Henderson, singing Beth by Kiss; Cassiah Castro, singing Miss Thing; Rachael Sparks, singing and dancing to Country Girl; and Meghann Olguin, singing Hot-n-Cold.
