Past President II Royce Moore hosted this event, which will send a winner to the Regional Competition for District 5340. The Judges were all musicians themselves: Kevin Culbertson, Vaughn North and Myrna North. Judging criteria were musical ability, empathy and technique, interpretation and stage presence. The Awards consisted of three prizes: $100, $75 and $50. Unusually, we had 3 contestants comprised of 2 High School Students, as one of the students performed on two instruments.
Escondido Rotary Club will be sponsoring 13 - 15 High School Juniors to this year's Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) program. We need volunteers to attend in April as Facilitators, and particularly women volunteers. RYLA encourages servant leadership in youth by recognizing and rewarding deserving 11th grade students who are chosen to attend RYLA as an "award" for their past and present leadership and service activities. Check out what it means to be a facilitator and sign up HERE.
Joe Giamanco presented a $2000 grant to Escondido Arts Partnership Executive Director, Chrisanne Moats.

Vets are encouraged to participate.
