What's your talent? Have you ever been to a talent show or competed in one? All of the Brunswick Middle School students had a chance to showcase their talents to their classmates earlier this month. And now you get a chance to see the top 15 students compete for first place.PHOTO: Willetts Middle School talent show students are (from back left to front right): Samantha Garrett, Madeline Murphy, Abigail Lindsey, Addison Lewis, Cecilia Till, Jeffrey Steving, and Emma Hinchliffe.

The first-ever Brunswick Middle Schools talent show is being organized by the assistant principals from all three middle schools: Jessica Boytim from Visintainer Middle School, James Kovi from Edwards Middle School, and Christina Stanovcak from Willetts Middle School. The PTO and PRIDE council from the 3 middle schools will be helping with the event as well.
The objective was to organize a community event that would involve all three middle schools working together towards a common goal. It was thought that a talent show would be a fun way to get students involved while showing off some of their many talents.
Each middle school hosted their individual talent show of 10-15 acts on Feb. 3 during the school day. The teachers and members of the PRIDE councils acted as judges. The top five acts from each middle school are going on to compete in the Brunswick Middle School Talent Show at the Performing Arts Center at Brunswick High School.
Stanovcak stated, "We would just like to thank all of the brave students who have auditioned for the talent show and those who will be performing in the talent show. Without their courage and bravery to get up and perform in front of their peers and the staff this event would not be possible."
The BMS talent show will be held on Feb. 23 at 6 p.m. at the Brunswick High School Performing Arts Center (PAC) and is open to the public. Tickets are $3 for adults and $1 for students.
All proceeds from the talent show will go to the school's Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) programs.
