Elgin High School wins U-46 TalentFest Trophy
Elgin High School took home the traveling TalentFest Trophy at the recent Elgin Area School District U-46 TalentFest, held at the Hemmens Cultural Center.
South Elgin High School's acts were ranked highly as well, finishing in first and third place.
At TalentFest, finalists from all five District U-46 high schools perform. At intermission, each member of the audience votes for their favorite act. The five acts receiving the most audience votes perform again, this time also evaluated by five preselected judges.
Those judges choose the first-, second- and third-place winners. The winners receive a cash prize and a plaque.
The school that has the most audience votes combined between its two acts receives the traveling TalentFest Trophy.
