First, second and third place winners will be chosen and awarded trophies.

The “Bee ’N Idol” contest is founded and organized by Robert Cisneros with the intention of drawing out all vocally talented Bee County residents between the ages of 12-17, who may wish to pursue a career in the music industry. The contest provides a platform to give individuals an opportunity to express their talent and offer them exposure within the community.
