SISTERS Amelia and Alicia Townsend were chosen as joint arts/education category winners in the January-February YoungStar awards.
They qualified for the national titles after a string of outstanding performances at the showcase state titles and their efforts impressed judges.
Amelia finished fourth in the junior solos and her sister was third in the same event.
