Northern Ontario Youth Talent Search Presents
$3,000 in Cash AwardsLong before Canadian Idol, American Idol or High School Idol, there was the Northern Ontario Youth Talent Search, now known as "Future Star". In the early 90’s, the Jay Family Singers were the last group to represent Northern Ontario until the talent search was revived by the CLE in 2003.
