Ezrie Thacker, a junior studying elementary education, was one of the judges for the auditions.

She said the event will include singing, dancing, storytelling and other performances that represent cultures from around the world.

It’s basically trying to show the whole school all the different cultures we have here and let students express their culture that people can watch and see,” Thacker said.

She said the judges are looking for people who know what they are doing, express a culture and have fun with their performance.
