Two Shawnee Mission high school students are among the 10 finalists in this year’s KC SuperStar competition.

Now in its tenth year, KC SuperStar is an “American Idol” format singing competition where metro area high school students show off their vocal chops in competition for a $10,000 Edward and Ellen Rose Scholarship. More than 2,000 singers audition for the competition each year.

Last week, the Jewish Community Center, which organizes the event, announced this year’s finalists, including Emma Mathieson of SM West, and Alexa Morgan of SM South.
