The Champaign-Urbana Junior Woman’s Club (CUJWC) is holding a virtual event: Fairy Tales and Superheroes: A Virtual Community Skit Competition. These skits are great for the whole family and are especially geared for young children to learn to enjoy live theater. Students in grades K-12 (and above) are encouraged to join this year by recording a skit and submitting it for viewing. There is no cost to obtain a script, but there is a required $20 entry fee for each video submitted. Deadline to submit videos is April 7, 2021.
Online voting will determine the winner. Viewing and voting for skits will begin at 10 am on April 10, 2021 and conclude at 7 pm on April 24, 2021. Each vote cast will cost $1 with a $5 minimum vote purchase. Encourage your family and friends to vote for their favorite skit. Participants in the videos receiving the most votes, will receive a trophy.
In addition to the skits, they will have raffle baskets made possible by generous donations from the community and businesses.
Videos will be shown at their Facebook Live Event beginning at 10 am, April 24, 2021.
Everything you need to know about getting a script, submitting the video, how to vote and purchase raffle tickets are on their website cujwc.org.
Proceeds from this event will support community agencies, individual scholarships, and projects in Champaign County. CUJWC is a not-for-profit organization.
