The Red River Ex is a few short weeks away and one of the draws will be the Stars of Tomorrow and Kidz Quest competitions.

To determine the semi-finalists in both contests, a round of auditions will be held today until Sunday at Tec Voc High School.

Singers, dancers and instrumentalists from across Manitoba between the ages of 13 and 21 can audition for the Stars of Tomorrow, while children aged eight to 12 can have their shot at Kidz Quest.

Auditions are tonight from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

A total of $4,000 in prize money is up for grabs during the competition, which takes place Saturday, June 16 at the Ex.

Advance gate tickets are on sale now, or keep checking back here on as we give several packages away next week.
