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 11 years, we've awarded $55,000 in prize money to finalists and donated over $45,000 in ticket proceeds to the music departments at our finalists' high schools.
