Auburn High School revels in High School Nation

Music festival entertains students, part of a 40-stop tour of schools throughout the country this fall

Baltimore-based Rapper Lil Key sings his heart out for all 1,700 of Auburn High School’s students Wednesday afternoon during a lunchtime performance on the school’s southeast parking lot.

Lil Key was one of four acts that the California-based non-profit High School Nation brought to the high school this week to slather the kids with positive vibes, to bulk up their self-esteem, to remind them to be creative and to believe in themselves, according to Janet Tarsi, the school’s activities director.

Auburn is one of only five schools in Washington state to be included on HSN’s 40-stop, nationwide tour, which heads next to Chicago.

The tour, sponsored by Hollister Co., aims to support creative expression among teens through musical festivals and programming. The two-hour concert and festival on each school campus is a celebration of music and the arts.
