KC SuperStar, Kansas City’s premiere high school singing competition, invites hundreds of high school singers to compete annually for the coveted title of KC SuperStar. In its 11th year of recognizing the best talent in the region, KC SuperStar is produced by the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City (The J). KC SuperStar 2020 awards a $10,000 scholarship prize to the best high school singer who is selected through the competition.
The finals will include a panel of entertainment industry professionals who will serve as judges and select the top four finalists. An audience vote will then determine the ultimate winner. In addition to the top prize, the Edward and Ellen Rose $10,000 Scholarship, other singers will be awarded scholarships for second place - $5,000; Third Place-$2,500; and Fourth Place-$1,000; all other finalists each receive $500 scholarships.
