Annual Teen Star Musical Competition

First Columbia Bank's Teen Star

First Columbia Bank & Trust is the proud sponsor of this American IdolĀ®-inspired annual competition. The Teen Star Musical Competition is a fun way for us to support our local youth, the performing arts, and area schools.

Since debuting in 2011, hundreds of local high school students have courageously and confidently auditioned before our judges in hopes of advancing to the finale and winning the top prize of $2,000!

Over the past 12 years, we've awarded $60,000 in prize money to finalists and donated over $44,000 in ticket proceeds to the music departments at our finalists' high schools.

  • Local high school students register for Teen Star and participate in closed auditions with a panel of independent judges from the music industry.
  • The judges choose 12 finalists to compete LIVE, on-stage at Mitrani Hall, Haas Center for the Arts at Bloomsburg University. Our expert judges, a cheering audience, and professional stage crew all combine to make for an incredible experience!
  • The top 12 finalists perform and are critiqued by our judges. Our judges then choose the Top 3 finalists and an audience save to perform one final time.
  • First place prize is $2,000! The second, third and fourth place finishers win $1,000, $750, and $350,
    respectively. And, the remaining eight finalists each receive $100.
