Open auditions slated for Beaverton Teen Idol contest


Singing competition also serves as benefit for homeless youth

The Mayor’s Youth Advisory Board is again hosting Beaverton Teen Idol this spring.

Students have a chance to audition for the singing competition on Friday, April 4, from 5 to 8 p.m. at Jesuit High School, 9000 S.W. Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway.

In partnership with Portland Teen Idol, the event finds the best pop voice in Beaverton, while raising funds to combat youth homelessness. Last year’s program raised nearly $2,000 for HomePlate Youth Services. 

Beaverton Teen Idol is a singing competition for teens ages 13 and older who attend Beaverton-area schools including Aloha, Arts and Communication Magnet Academy, Valley Catholic, Beaverton, Catlin Gabel, Jesuit, School of Science and Technology, Merlo Station, International School of Beaverton, Health and Science, Southridge, Sunset and Westview.

The competition consists of an audition, semi-final round on April 19 at the Beaverton City Library and a finale with details to be determined. The winner of Beaverton Teen Idol will receive prizes and have the opportunity to embark on a summer tour with Portland Teen Idol.

“If you love to sing — and want to help our homeless youth — this is your chance to share your talent,” according to Mayor Denny Doyle. “I encourage all Beaverton School District high school students to audition. It’s a lot of fun and helps an important cause.”
