Singers 14 and under who are interested in competing in the youth division of Creston’s Best Singer will have a few more weeks to practice.

Producer Vern Gorham has moved the date for the youth contest from Dec. 4 to Jan. 17, two weeks before the Jan. 31 quarterfinal.

“It made more sense to place it closer to the other contests,” Gorham said. “With a shorter time between it and the adult quarterfinals, it will help keep the excitement building.”

The top two youth singers will compete with the top 20 adults singers in a Feb. 14 semifinal show, and the top 10 from that will compete in a final round on March 7.
