OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - Ten metro high school students spent Sunday night singing their heart out. It was the performance for K.C. Superstar, a contest put on annually by The Jewish Community Center.

Blue Valley Northwest High School graduate Austin Klein won first place.

"It has been an honor and a privilege being able to sing with them because they are such a great group of people," he told FOX 4."They are like my family."

Klein won a $10,000 dollar scholarship that will help pay for his tuition at Notre Dame University.

Actor, comedian and Kansas City native Rob Riggle emceed the event.

"They are all clearly talented or they wouldn't be up there," he said.

Avilia University offered a full ride scholarship to all of the competition finalists.
