INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Solo instrumentalists and solo singers are currently being sought to join in the Incline Village Rotary Youth Music Contest.

High school youth ages 14-18 from public, non-traditional and home schooling are eligible.

The first contest is “Rotary Local,” to be held at Cornerstone Church at 300 Country Club Blvd. in Incline Village, on March 27 from 7-10 p.m. For instrumentalists, first prize is $150, second is $100, and third is $50. The same prizes are awarded in the singing category.

First Place Instrumentalist goes on to the Rotary Area Contest, also held at Cornerstone, on April 24, 7-10 pm. Prizes there are $350, $250 and $100, respectively, for first, second and third.
