The annual talent show is an opportunity for students to showcase their talents that they might not share otherwise throughout the year. While in the past it has been held in the spring at the end of the year, this year it will be held in January shortly after students return from Winter Break.

StuCo co-sponsor Alicia Brungardt said that they decided to move the talent show to make it easier for the students participating.

“Student participation was more difficult in the spring because of all the different activities that are going on,” Brungardt said. “We’re doing this in the middle of winter because we want to try to catch kids when they aren’t quite so busy. Even though there are a lot of winter activities as well, you’ll be coming back from Christmas break and we’ll have the talent show shortly after the second semester kicks off. “So it’s not as crazy as it is at the end of the year, when people are trying to graduate and spring sports are in full swing and testing going on.”

Brungardt said that nine acts had signed up for auditions, and likely six or seven would make it into the show, but it would depend on how long the acts were. StuCo has a designated amount of time they can use and they need to fit the acts into that time.

Senior Shyann Schumacher is in charge of planning the show and said that the most difficult part was shortly before the deadline to sign up because no one had signed up until the last few days.

The judges for auditions this year are StuCo co-sponsors Brungardt and Kathy Wagoner and StuCo president Peyton Thorell.

Brungardt said that her favorite part was when her officers and StuCo members got to see it come to fruition and be successful with bringing a project to a close.

“The judges have the hardest jobs,” Brungardt said. “Students who try out for the show really put themselves out there, it’s a big deal to stand out in front of your peers and perform, and it’s stressful for many of them. Unfortunately, not all acts make it into the final show.  Making the decision about which acts get into the show is a challenge.  We want people to be successful, but competition doesn’t work that way.  Judges also have a tough job, they have to decide who comes out the winner at the end.  I’m not part of the final judging, and I appreciate the people who volunteer to fulfill that role.”
