13 - 16 Years Old
Contestants will form groups of 3-8 actors to perform a script of up to 10 minutes in length. The script should be in English, but can be an original piece or an existing one. As far as possible, contestants should aim to choose scripts where each actor has roughly the same number of lines to deliver.
Judging is based on the quality of the acting rather than of the script. Scripts with compelling storylines that promote positive values, however, are more likely to generate the kinds of performance our judges are looking for.
Cash prize of $300 - $800 (depending on group size)
