Talent search winners named; DVDs to be shown at Conference

Joint Annual Conference of IASB/IASA/IASBO
November 20-22, 2009

Musical groups from Jacobs High School in Algonquin and Johns Hill Magnet School in Decatur have been selected as this year's winners in a DVD talent search sponsored by the Illinois Association of School Boards.

The DVD presentations will be shown immediately prior to the first and second General Sessions, respectively, at the IASB/IASA/Illinois ASBO Joint Annual Conference at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Chicago, Nov. 20 and 21.

Jacobs High School, Community Unit School District 300, Carpentersville, submitted a DVD of its Madrigal Choir featured at a performance before the National Association of School Boards Conference in April 2009. The Johns Hill Show Choir presentation was from competition at the Sullivan Invitational in February 2009.

Criteria for selection was based on both performance and production quality of the DVD. Judges specifically looked for accuracy of pitch, rhythm and clarity; balance of the ensemble; appearance and confidence; the appropriateness of the content for the audience; and the entertainment value of the presentation.

This is the first year that IASB has sponsored the competition, which was open to any Association member school district in Illinois. More than 98 percent of the districts in Illinois are members of IASB.

The annual conference in downtown Chicago draws more than 12,000 school board members, administrators and other school personnel, exhibitors and their guests for 2½ days of speakers and panel presentations, all geared toward professional development that will enable districts to meet the challenges of education.
