Over 530 students in grades 9-12 from dozens of Christian schools and homeschool groups will participate in a series of competitions in art, music, speech, video, preaching and teaching.

"We are excited to welcome attendees and competitors to the 51st annual High School Festival competition. This event brings hundreds of high schoolers to the BJU campus to compete and display their talents. We are continually impressed with the quality of their performances and entries,” said Andrew Carter, University Host. “We are thankful for the involvement of the many BJU faculty and staff who help make this event a meaningful experience for our guests.”

In addition to the competition experience and prizes for the category winners, all participants receive personalized feedback from BJU faculty. Students participating in the preaching and teaching categories will receive feedback from the BJU School of Theology & Global Leadership and BJU Seminary faculty.
