In a news release, Art Sandy Springs, a nonprofit dedicated to promoting the arts in the city, Tuesday announced the winners of ArtSSpring's ShowStoppers 2013, a youth talent show that took place May 4 at Act3 Productions in Sandy Springs. ArtSSpring is a 30-day series of arts events hosted by Art Sandy Springs.

Each act was judged, with cash prizes awarded to the top three participants in three age groups. Judges included Earl Reece, executive director of The Earl Smith Strand Theatre; Lisa Rosmond, music educator and vocal coach at Jan Smith Studios; Jane White, executive director of The Bridge Music Foundation; and Catherine Rhodes of The Earl Smith Strand Theatre.

“This year ShowStoppers was open to kids from across metro Atlanta,” said Patti Mactas, artistic director of Act3 Productions.

After auditioning solo and group singers, dancers, musicians and other performers from kindergarten through high school, the Act3 staff selected 49 acts from 36 different schools from Atlanta metro cities and counties.

The judges awarded cash prizes of $100, $75, and $50 to first-, second-, and third-place finishers in each of the three age groups.

The elementary school winners were Matt Alea of east Cobb (first), Jordan Harmon of Roswell (second) and Catherine Roddey of Atlanta (third). The middle school winners were Piper Gibson of Sandy Springs (first), Hannah Shapiro of Atlanta (second) and Kids on the Mountain (third - Landon Ebuna, Daniel Frisbee, Shelbea Owen and Zach Seabaugh, all of Kennesaw). The high school winners were Beau Harmon of Kennesaw (first), Jake Smith of Atlanta (second) and Katie Hollenshead of east Cobb (third).
