KENNEWICK, Wash.-- Aspiring singers auditioned Saturday at the Kennewick Boys and Girls Club for their chance at joining the The Washington State Nashville Star Competition.
Contestants sang a country song for the judges panel.
The competition is open to high school students and organizers say every year around 250 teens try out.
"It's a varied response from the kids but for some of them it's a life changing experience. You can see their confidence grow not only with performing," said Ed Lisenbey, Washington State Nashville Star Competition creator.
Fifteen contestants will perform at the finals on March 30th at the Omak Performing Arts Center.
The winner will receive a grand prize of $1,500.
