Winners will be announced at the eveRIAthing Wall of Stars awards night on July 25 at the Columbia in New Westminster.

Songwriters unable to attend the two local sessions can submit online entries by May 31 at www.everiathing.com/#! the-star-experience/c238d.

“It will be lovely to have a lot of our local teens take advantage of this opportunity,” said Diy.
