Do you have star quality and a desire to perform? ‘Stand Up! Stand Out!’ is a performing arts competition for Auckland secondary schools proudly delivered by Auckland Council.

Entries are now open for this year’s competition - with heats, semi-finals and finals held in August 2014.

Cr. Alf Filipaina, Arts, Culture and Event Committee Chair says council is committed to growing a culturally rich and creative Auckland by providing a platform for young people to grow and further their interest in performing arts – growing Auckland’s artists of the future.

“We have an awesome talent in our high schools. I love seeing the passion and energy that goes into Stand Up! Stand Out! This event is about giving our young people the power and chance to unleash their creativity”, he says.

Entries close 29 July so don’t miss out – put your hand up to Stand Up! and Stand Out! Check out www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz for more info.
