Last year, two members of the community proved that you're never too old to take part in the Shoalhaven Eisteddfod.
Max Croot, 90, and Peter Thompson, 85, won the instrumental duo section and may be back for more this year!!
Entries are now being received for the 36th City of Shoalhaven Eisteddfod so don't delay - entries close on March 1.
The Shoalhaven Eisteddfod runs from mid-May to mid-June each year.
Schools' convenor Ona Frazier has always highlighted the great opportunity the eisteddfod provides for schools to showcase their achievements in vocal and instrumental music, dance and speech and drama.
In addition to the fantastic experience of performing on the stage at the state of the art Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre.
All Shoalhaven school entrants are considered for two special awards - The Helen Ring Award from Shoalhaven City Council Arts Board and the $1000 Schools' Encouragement Award.
Mrs Frazier encourages all school communities to participate in the many school sections listed in the eisteddfod syllabus which can be accessed on the eisteddfod website: www.shoalhaveneisteddfod.org.au
All schools have been sent a copy of the syllabus.
Of course, there are many sections for individual and community groups to enter and entrants can access the syllabus and entry form online at www.shoalhaveneisteddfod.org.au or check out the Shoalhaven Eisteddfod on Facebook.
Don't be shy, join in - great experience, great enjoyment for everyone.
You can collect a hard copy of the syllabus from the City Library, City Arts Centre and music shops in Berry and Nowra.
