April 24, 2014 - 11:46 AM

KELOWNA - The future leaders of our community, our province and our nation will be gathering in the Central Okanagan September 23-27 to attend the 30th annual Canadian Student Leadership Conference (CSLC 2014) and we are searching for entertainment headliners. CSLC 2014 Idol is set for Thursday evening beginning at 4 p.m. in the Mary Irwin Theatre at the Rotary Arts Centre, as we search and audition for a variety of entertainers for the week-long CSLC 2014 event.

Over 25 entertainers will perform on the Irwin stage for 3 to 5 minutes with a range of talents that highlight slam poetry, hip hop, highland, contemporary and cultural dancing, a diversity of singing, musical soloists and groups, beat boxing and of course, the bagpipes!

What is at stake is a place on the main stage in front of over 1000 teachers and advisors from across Canada. Admission is free to the public and supporters.

The Central Okanagan School District is excited to be co-hosting CSLC 2014, in partnership with the Canadian Student Leadership Association (CSLA).
