Aug. 5, 2002 – Tutu Park Mall on St. Thomas is putting on a show: "Back to School – Apollo Style."
The Mall wants to help students earn money for the new school year, said a release. On Saturday, Aug. 17, at 2 p.m. students will have the opportunity to earn back-to-school money performing their talents at the "Back to School Apollo Style" competition.
The event is modeled after the popular syndicated television show "It's Showtime at the Apollo." Competitors will try their luck at singing, dancing, performing stand-up comedy or original poems. They will have three to five minutes to convince the audience that their talent should garner them the grand prize, a $200 back-to-school shopping spree at Tutu Park Mall.
Students will be divided into three age groups: ages 5-11, ages 12-17 and ages 18 and up. At the end of the performance for each age group the audience will be asked to cheer for the student with the most talent. The student with the most audience applause will be named the winner.
Students interested in participating must stop by the mall management office next to Pearle Vision and complete an application. Space is limited, so early sign up is encouraged. In order to qualify, student identification must be presented during registration. Deadline to register is August 14th.
For more information please call 775-4658.
