It was held in Good Samaritan Village at the Hastings Community Theater. The contest was divided into two divisions. In division 1, the group Take 2 from Augusta, Kan. took first. Hershey was second and Wilber-Clatonia third.

Sutherland finished third in division 2 behind first place Centennial High and Elkhorn Valley in second.

Augusta, after traveling 271 miles to compete, won the overall championship trophy with Hershey taking runner up honors.

The competition was hosted by Harvard Public Schools.

Blake Thompson, music director at Harvard, said the goal is to have schools leave with a positive competitive and educational experience.

"We hope to make this an annual affair for small schools throughout Nebraska and surrounding states" Thompson said.

Eleven choirs took part in the contest. They also included the Sutherland show choir, the Gibbon mixed show choir, the Gibbon women’s choir, Fuchsia Rhapsody from Wilber-Clatonia, Elkhorn Valley Livewires, Cambridge High School Music Company, Centennial Royal Blues, Wood River show choir and the Harvard Cardinal and Black Singers.

Each choir was graded by three judges during public performances based upon the quality of vocal and choreography presentations. Points were tallied and the results were announced at the end of the day.

"We brought our choir here as it gave them the opportunity to compete against schools outside our area as well as schools similar in size to ours, said Hershey’s musical director Teresa Rotert.
