Beginning May 16, members of the Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) community were invited to view and vote for their favourite musical acts in the following categories: student solo, student group, staff solo or staff group. After receiving more than 11,200 combined Facebook reactions and votes on the Google form, the top two acts from each category have been identified and invited to perform live at the SCDSB Idol Finale on June 5 at 4 p.m. at the Education Centre in Midhurst. 

The top acts, in alphabetical order, are:

Members of the public are invited to attend the finale event, where each act will perform and a panel of judges will select the first SCDSB Idol. The event will also be live streamed on the SCDSB Facebook page.
