Local performers will set South Hedland’s town square alight next week as they show off their singing, rapping, dancing and other skills for National Youth Week.

The week of auditions will culminate at the annual Hedland’s Got Talent final next Friday.

Entering it’s eighth year, the Youth Involvement Council ev-ent is open to entrants aged eight-25 to attend auditions at YIC HQ on 34 Lawson Street during the week.

If they are successful, participants will go through to the final at Hedland Town Square.

YIC manager of youth development Kristal-Kareen Wyllie said she was excited to see what this year would hold.

“The YIC holds the HGT competition during National Youth Week and it is our way to acknowledge young people for their individual talents,” she said.

“It is a really enjoyable night and each year keeps getting bigger and bigger.”

At the final, YIC will also present the Hedland Youth Awards in which young people are nominated for their contributions to the community in the categories of sport, community and culture, arts and writing and education/vocation.
