The registration deadline for this year’s Starke County Young Artists’ Conference is approaching, but the Knox chapter of the Psi Iota Xi Sorority has announced they will likely be extending that deadline until Monday, March 10, rather than the current deadline of Friday.
Chapter President Tammy Fletcher said this event is a great opportunity for children to learn more about possible careers or opportunities in life. It was previously an event hosted by teachers of area schools, but it eventually came to a halt. Fletcher, however, said it was too great of a program to let it end.
“I just thought it’s a wonderful opportunity for the kids to learn about something more than reading, writing and arithmetic, and that there are more jobs and opportunities out there for them than just being a doctor, a nurse, fireman or something like that – I wanted them to see that there are many possibilities of things that they can do with their life,” Fletcher said.
This year marks the 19th Annual Young Artists’ Conference at the Liberty Elementary School in North Judson. The event begins at 8:30 a.m. and runs through 2 p.m. CT.
This year’s keynote speaker for the opening program is Shannon Anderson, a literacy coach, author, and presenter from Rensselaer. She has been published in Highlights Magazine, Chicken Soup for the Soul, and has a picture book entitled, I am Not a Pirate.
On top of that, Fletcher said a number of other presenters will be there as well.
“Every year is different. We have different presenters, the children split up into two groups and there are four presenters for each group. In the afternoon we have a program that the whole family is invited back to see, usually 45 minutes to an hour. This year, we have Adzooks Puppets, and they are lifesize puppets who make musical instruments out of strange things and they invite some of the children down from the audience to help them play the instruments,” Fletcher said.
Registration forms are available at local schools, libraries, and the Starke County Youth Group. A mid-morning snack and lunch is included in the price of registration. The registration form and fee of $5 are due no later than March 10.

A North Judson-San Pierre employee was recently recognized as this year’s Richard and Kareen Nielsen Bluejay award.
The Nielsen award is given to acknowledge special individuals, past and present, who faithfully embody the Bluejay Spirit.
Ray Rohzon has worked at the North Judson-San Pierre School Corporation since 2008 and has made it his mission to take care of the high school gymnasium. He cares for the facility as if it was his own and takes special care of the floor for regular season basketball games and for sectional and regional tournaments.
Rohzon graduated from Kankakee Valley High School in 1973, but he’s not afraid to show his alliance to the Bluejays. School officials call him an “exceptional employee” and a huge Bluejay sports fan. He loves basketball, baseball and football and proud to call North Judson-San Pierre his team.
Ray Rohzon was presented with the Nielsen award this week during a Tuesday night basketball game in North Judson.
The Relay for Life of Starke County is in the planning phase and looking for some volunteers who are interested in helping plan this year’s event. There are a variety of positions open; some with minimal time commitment and others with a little bit more. We are looking for volunteers to help with Silent Auction, Survivors, Entertainment and Activities, Mission and Advocacy, Fundraising, Team Retention, Publicity and Youth Engagement. If any of those areas sound interesting to you, we would love to have you join the committee.
Please contact the Event Chair, Ericka Taylor-Joseph at (574) 252-9489. All proceeds from the Relay for Life event go to the American Cancer Society to help fight back against this terrible disease that has taken so many in our community. Please consider volunteering to help make this year’s Relay for Life event a huge success!
