The 38th annual Festival of the Performing Arts is in full swing and the speech category results are in.

The event is taking place from March 7-20 at Nechako Valley Senior School in Vanderhoof, B.C.

Students were invited to enter three different categories: piano, speech arts and strings.

Norma Hoy, a piano teacher in Fort St James says that this is a great opportunity for kids in the community.

“There’s a lot of talent here, so what better way to show it off. It also gives kids exposure and they receive feedback from outside sources,” Hoy said.

Awards are given in all categories.

A piano workshop will be offered on March 15 at 7:30 p.m. and the festival will wrap up with a Spring Arts Gala Concert at the Integris Community Theatre (NVSS small auditorium) on Sunday March 20 at 2:30 p.m.
