  • This was a fun little festival that was primarily geared towards high school students but was nice enough to include college students as well - which is something students really need!
    The venue was beautiful and it was professionally run - and the awards were great! (Not a certificate!)
    James & Cedric were awesome and did a great job - you can tell they really care about the students that participate in the festival!
    Looking forward to their other festivals!

    Although I was not able to attend the festival due to school, they were very quick to communicate with me, and very kind.
    Def recommend submitting!

    Thanks Jacob. Sorry to hear that the hospitality and the communication were not up to snuff! We'll work on it.
