Mount Isa Youth Talent Show 2017

‘Sax duo’ Maddison Dolzan, 11, and Willow Shaw, 12, won the Isa Youth Has Talent Show on Friday. 

The Mount Isa School of Dance students would spend their $1000 prize on dance lessons, Eisteddfod entry fees and costumes. “No, they are not cheap,” the girls said. 

“We hope to do something with it (dancing) in our career and then become a dance teacher.”

In third place was singer Tara Sweetman, who was first to compete and persevered through sound technical difficulties. She won $250.
