Contest entries are still being accepted, until April 18. The top entries will be selected to perform and compete at the Showcase. Winners in each age group will be announced at the end of the Showcase and Grand Prize winners will receive a Mini- Ipad. Additionally, winners will be invited to perform again at the North County Earth Festival on April 27.
