Annual Teen Star Musical Competition








First Columbia Bank's Teen Star

First Columbia Bank & Trust is the proud sponsor of this American Idol®-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 10 years, we've awarded $50,000 in prize money to finalists and donated over $45,000 in ticket proceeds to the music departments at our finalists' high schools.

Teen Star 2021 Is Here!

First Columbia Bank & Trust Co. is pleased to announce the 11th Annual First Columbia Teen Star Musical Competition. Instead of the live auditions and live finale, the Bank will host this event in a virtual format this year due to the current circumstances. Nonetheless, we want to continue our annual tradition of giving our youth a creative platform to showcase their music talents and a chance to win some great prize money. So, grab your cameras, warm up your vocals, and let's start singing! Register and upload your audition videos by Thursday, April 29th 2021.

Shining from home in 2020

Last year, the local community helped First Columbia Bank generate donations for AGAPE during the 10th Annual First Columbia Teen Star Musical Competition. The first ever VIRTUAL Teen Star event raised $106,000 for this local mission that does so much to help people in need throughout our community.
