Rome Kiwanis announces its annual Art and Music Showcase competitions where winning contestants earn educational scholarships.

Students in grades 9-12 in Rome City and Floyd County schools — and homeschool students who reside in Floyd County — are eligible to enter.

The Music Showcase will take place on Saturday, March 21, from 1-3 p.m. at the Bell Recital Hall (formerly Ford Auditorium) at Berry College. A maximum of 20 contestants will be accepted.

Talent must be vocal or instrumental. The winner will receive a $1,000 educational scholarship with the opportunity to compete in the April 25 Georgia District of Kiwanis International Showcase in Leesburg, where the top educational scholarship is $3,500.

Entries into the Art Showcase competition will be accepted on March 25 and 26 at the Rome-Floyd County Library, 205 Riverside Parkway.

Entries will hang in the library from April 1 until April 16. Winners will be announced at a reception for artists on April 7 at 6 p.m., at the library. First-, second- and third-place winners will be recognized from each grade.

The Best-of-Show winner will receive a $1,000 educational scholarship. All first place winners and Best-of-Show winner will be eligible to have their art entered into the Georgia District of Kiwanis International Showcase.
