Youth Opportunities - Saturday January 29th, 2011

Saturday January 29, 2011

[UPDATE: It may be useful to browse these old listings as many programs are annual, but for more current contests and competitions, head to the Youth Opportunities page.]

Here's the weekly round-up of opportunities for Ontario youth. I just post these as I come across them, so be sure to research any opportunity thoroughly and read all the fine print before getting submitting something yourself or recommending an opportunity to students.

Show Choir Canada National Championships
• Canadian high school show choirs
