Showstopper challenge 2018
Each year, BTEC students share their talents by performing on the BTEC Awards stage – and they bring the house down every time. Entries for this year’s Showstopper Challenge are now open.
It’s a great opportunity for your students to showcase their creativity onstage in front of fellow students, teachers, parents and celebrities.

What's the theme this year?
For 2018, the theme is The Power of Voice.
You can get creative with this – we’re looking for singers, dance groups, musicians, comedians, film makers, spoken word (e.g. rap, poetry, monologue) and theatre style performances which celebrate the power of having – and expressing – your voice.
Looking for inspiration? Take a look at the winners from 2017.
How does it work?
There’s a simple submission form to complete - we look at every application and select three successful acts who can be individuals or groups.
Competition closes at midnight on Friday 20 April 2018 (sorry – we can’t consider entries after the closing date).
We’ll choose the winning teams on Monday 14 May and invite them to perform live on stage in London at the BTEC Awards ceremony on 5 July 2018 at Central Hall, Westminster.
They also get a Certificate, a special BTEC Award – and an unforgettable experience they can add to their CVs at the start of their careers.
