Scunthorpe area youngsters: Are you a Class Act ?
THE search is on for youngsters to take part in this year's Class Act competition.
For the 10th successive year, the Scunthorpe Telegraph will be promoting the talent show for students in North Lincolnshire.
Among the first to sign up for the 2013 Class Act contest was Winterton Community Academy, which produced last year's winner Luke West.
Luke, 16, pictured, went on to appear with chart acts Stooshe and Lawson at a star-studded party at the Baths Hall to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Scunthorpe Telegraph.

Invitations to select two representatives for the semi-finals have been sent out to the 15 secondary schools and colleges in the region.
The two semi-finals will be hosted at the Redbourn Social Club in Cemetery Road, Scunthorpe, on April 25 and May 9.
The grand final showdown has been set for May 30.
Once again, there will be a top cash prize of £1,000, to be shared between the winning act and their school.
Two of last year's sponsors Canpack UK and United Health have already signed up to back the contest again.
Philip Pearson, managing director of United Health, said: "This will be the 10th year that United Health has sponsored Class Act and is very proud to have been associated with the Scunthorpe Telegraph and this competition."
Many of the schools entering use their own in-campus talent search as a fundraising exercise.
Broughton-based singer Rachel Day will again act as compere for the shows.
She said: "This will be the 10th anniversary talent search for Class Act, so it promises to be bigger and better than ever before."
