Kids between the ages of 8-17 will compete for prizes ranging from performing arts scholarships to cash awards and performance opportunities, to tickets to local attractions and theatres. This year, courtesy of WSVN CH7, the Grand Prize winner will receive a free trip – airfare, hotel and free passes for two – to attend the live American Idol finale. The countywide competition will begin on Feb. 8th, with preliminary auditions that will take place through April 12th at four local theatres. The competition will feature a total of six individual categories including; pop/rock/rap vocals, musical theatre/jazz standards/classical vocals, dance, musical instrument, original spoken word and original vocal and/or instrumental composition, and categories of six or less members including; dance, musical instrumental and band/vocal group. Participation is free of charge and limited to residents of Miami-Dade County.

Seven preliminary auditions will take place in diverse locations throughout Miami-Dade, including the Miracle Theatre, John A. Ferguson Senior High School, South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center and the Joseph Caleb Center.
