Mid-Prairie High School is hosting a band and choir contest this morning. Ten other 2A schools, including Columbus Junction and Louisa-Muscatine, will compete in the High School State Large Group Contest, their final contest of the year.
Mid-Prairie Choir Director Collette McClellen says each band will perform twenty minutes and will be rated on a scale of 1 to 5 in eight different categories by a panel of judges.
She notes similar events are being held all over the state today. The event runs from 8 to 1pm.
