Teen Stars Earn Money for School Music Departments

First Columbia Bank & Trust, Co.ís recently held Teen Star Musical Competition raised over $5,000 for the music departments at several local schools. The competition featured twelve area high school students from Benton, Berwick, Bloomsburg, Central Columbia, Millville, and Southern Columbia High Schools. In addition to individual prize money awarded to the participants, all proceeds were divided among the schools they represented. Throughout the eight years the bank has been hosting this annual competition, $40,000 has been donated to our area schools and another $40,000 has been awarded to the competing students in prize money. First Columbia Bank is a proud supporter of music and the performing arts in our schools and is pleased to see a continued interest and enthusiasm for Teen Star within the schools and the community.
