The first-ever Seaford Idol rocked the Seaford Middle School gymnasium as more than 20 young vocalists sang their best in an effort to win the one-night competition.
The fundraising event, hosted by the Seaford chapter of National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) and sponsored by WBLI 106.1 Radio, drew nearly 400 people and collected $570. The money will be donated to a local cause.
Sixth-graders Ryan Butler and Eddie Kuzinski were the first-place winners. Seventh-grader Arianna Casha took second and eighth-grader Kaya Marino came in third. Winners were awarded a one-year membership to Atlantis Marine World Aquarium in Riverhead and an opportunity to go to a recording studio. In addition, the first-place winners were awarded and opportunity to guest DJ at WBLI 106.1 Radio.
“The night was a terrific success and everyone had a wonderful time,” said Christina Urso, NJHS advisor. “We are looking forward to next year’s show, which we believe will be even better.”
