Musicians, singers and even a magician made Dixon's Teen Center come alive Saturday night, January 25, at the center's annual "Dixon's Got Talent" show.
Performers competed for the votes or around 50 teens in attendance, with cash prizes awarded for the winners.
First place ($100) was given to rapper Angel Quintero, with second ($25) going to the singing duo of Destiny Bailey and Jahyra Guzman. Third went to dancer Mickey Quintero and fourth was bestowed to the singing trio of Shelby Jordan, Angelina Iglesias and Cydney Duncan. Third and fourth places received gift cards.
In all, ten individuals and groups performed.
The Teen Center is open to Dixon middle- and high-school students and is a great place to socialize, learn, enjoy games, and meet new people. The center is staffed by a group of adult volunteers and a small staff. The center, at 455 East A Street, is open most Friday and Saturday evenings from 6 to 11 p.m. and has after-school hours (with some workshops being offered) on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 3 to 6 p.m. and on Wednesday from 2 to 6 p.m.
