(NEB)-Chadron Kiwanis Stars Of Tomorrow Results
By Con Marshall
CHADRON - More than the usual number of trophies were awarded during the Kiwanis Stars of Tomorrow talent contest in Chadron on Sunday.
That’s because all five of the entries in Division III for 7th through 9th graders earned trophies after the judges decided each of them deserved special recognition.
Josh Fernau of Chadron and Gabriel Varvel of Hay Springs shared first place, Brayla Miller of Chadron was awarded second place and Jocelyn Varvel of Hay Springs and Sara Rose Smith of Chadron tied for third place.
Fernau played his guitar and sang “Angel Eyes,” Gabriel Varvel played “High Street Stomp” on the piano, Miller played the guitar and sang “Fight Song,” Jocelyn Varvel accompanied herself on the piano while singing “What Do I Know of Holy” and Smith gave a gymnastics presentation.
The competition also was stiff in the other three divisions. Piano solos won each of them. The Division I winner was Tristan Herbert on “Wild Appaloosa,” the Division II winner was Aran Kutchera of Hay Springs with “The Firefly” and the Division IV winner was David Johnson, who played Beethoven’s “Fur Elise.”
As the winner of the upper age group, Johnson receives a $150 scholarship and is eligible to represent the club at the Rocky Mountain District “Stars of Tomorrow” in Loveland, Colo., on May 20.
Third graders from Hay Spring—Reese Varvel and Bristol Prado—were second and third, respectively, in Division I with their vocal solos.
Aubrey Milburn played a piano solo to earn second place in Division II and Joshua Smith was third with his trumpet solo.
The runner-up in Division IV was Pamela Fisher for her dance routine and Jashwa Alan Cummings took third with his “slam poetry” presentation.
