What is KC SuperStar?
Now in its fifth year, KC SuperStar is an “American Idol” style competition that awards the $10,000 Craig Citron Memorial Scholarship to the best high school singer in the metropolitan area.
For participants, KC SuperStar is an invaluable experience. Following an audition, a panel of industry professionals selects 20 singers to move on to the semifinals. From there, competition judges select 10 finalists to perform and compete in an exhilarating show in front of 1300 people. The final performance takes place at Johnson County Community College (JCCC). The audience will vote electronically for the winner of the $10,000 prize and the KC SuperStar 2014 title.
This year, in celebration of the JCC’s 100th year, we are honoring the founding families of the Jewish Community Campus, whose vision and generosity provided the JCC with an inclusive environment to offer programs that enhance wellness, meaning and joy for all its members.

The JCC is a respected leader in the areas of child development, youth services, cultural arts, senior adult programming, fitness and sports. With more than 8,000 members, the JCC is open to peopel of all faiths and backgrounds.
