Scholarships up for grabs

Parksville-Youth who believe they have talent in any artistic discipline are encouraged to try out for the Mosaic Youth Talent Showcase

Last year Esme Liddicoat performed at the Mosaic Youth Talent Showcase. A call for youth to participate in the event this year is happening now.

Youth who believe they have talent in any artistic discipline are encouraged to try out for the Mosaic Youth Talent Showcase, where they’ll have a chance to take home a scholarship to help them reach their dreams.

Local rising country singer Beth Marie Anderson is producing the show once again, which is sponsored by the Parksville Rotary Club. Youth under 25 years of age need to contact Anderson as soon as possible and she’ll set up an audition time. Those that are chosen will move on to perform at Knox United Church May 4, and every performer at that event takes home a scholarship to further their education in the discipline of their choice, each of varying amounts.

Last year over 60 people applied and 13 were chosen for the Showcase.  Anderson said there’s room for all kinds of diverse performances from acting to singing and everything in between. She hopes those who have never come out before will contact her to audition.

“I want to make sure I pay attention to those that I know and believe in but also give the kids who haven’t been able to participate or maybe just heard about it last year, a chance.”

Contact Anderson at to schedule an audition.
