The West Michigan Student Showcase has been a staple along the lakeshore for nearly 42 years. This annual celebration showcases close to 250 students from 35 different school districts throughout Muskegon, Ottawa, Oceana, Newaygo, and Mason Counties.
Students are selected by their respective schools in the competitive areas of Digital Media Arts, Literary Arts, Performing Arts, and Visual Arts, as well as the recognition areas of Academics and Athletics. Monetary awards are given in the competitive categories for first, second, and third place, including a Showstopper award in the Performing Arts category.
Join us on March 15 & 16, 2023 at the lovely Frauenthal Theatre to experience this amazing display of local youth talent!
