The Tahoe Douglas Rotary Club held its annual student music contest at the MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa convention center on April 9.

Students from Whittell High School auditioned for the show and performed in front of an audience of Rotarians and guests. Each musician was judged on delivery and content.

The first place prize of $125 was awarded to Rob Caligar, who performed an original piece on the guitar. Rob has been a contestant for the past three years. The high school junior went on to compete in the regional music contest with winners from South Tahoe, Carson and Douglas high schools.

The second place prize of $75 was awarded to Nina Jimenez who played the violin. The third place prize of $50 went to eighth grader Nolan Marquez who played the electric guitar.

Fourth place honors and a check for $25 went to Turner Yates, who played acoustic guitar.
