Helena, prepare to be blinded by the 30th annual Night to Shine on Feb. 27 at 7 p.m. at the Helena Civic Center.

“If you’re not doing anything Monday night, get to the Civic Center and see what high schoolers can do,” said Levi Dawes, Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA) coordinator at Capital High School. “When it comes to the talent in general out of this group, it’s the best we’ve ever seen.”

The event is put on by the DECAs at Capital and Helena high schools who’ve been working on setting it up since December.

Around 30 acts auditioned before a panel of judges, and 21 acts were selected. These Helena youth acts this year include performing poetry, singing, Hula dancing, a dog-trick show and more. One returning act from last year is Helena High School’s Bengalettes drill team.

DECA co-president Carlee Foster stated the clubs have been able to raise more than $4,000 from the Helena community to cover the cost of the Civic Center, tickets and more. They’re still getting sponsorships. Foster highlighted club member John Settle, a senior at Capital, who’s been huge for fundraising this year.
