Jamie Showalter, 17, who organized Carson High School's talent show for her senior project, said going into it that she was more nervous than the performers.
However, Wednesday's show turned out to be a success.
"It went very well," she said. "I was really happy with it."
Sixteen teams competed for a $100 prize as a fundraiser for the video production students to attend the state SkillsUSA competition.
"The performers were excellent," Showalter said. "The competition was really tight."
The winners were:
First place: Molly Seals playing the guitar and singing her original song, "Wind in My Hair." She said the inspiration for the song was her former classmate Alex Parker, who died this year in a car accident.
Second place: Albert Reed singing "Hallelujah," by Jeff Buckley
Third place: Elizabeth White, Brandon Dodge, Keely Cobb, and Connor Farrell playing the Trash Can Band with Jennyfer Reynolds-Strange singing, "I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker With Flowers in My Hair," by Sandi Thom.
The winner received $100, second-place took home $50 and $25 went to third-place.
