The 32nd Annual Texas State Forest Festival is just around the corner, and KICKS 105 and KFOX 95.5 will once again kick off the event with the Pom Pon/Dance Team Competition.  The action will start Wednesday, September 21st at 6:30 p.m.

Once again, middle school and high school teams from across the Pineywoods are expected to compete in such categories as jazz, hip hop, pom-pon, and more.  In previous years, teams from Lufkin, Hudson, Shelbyville, Livingston, Onalaska, Diboll, Central, Huntington, Center, and Pineywoods Community Academy have participated.

The only major change for this year's competition will come in the 'Officer's Only' category.  This year, officers may compete in any dance genre category and the judges will score each performance on their own merit.

A big shout out goes to the folks from Academy of Gymnastics and Dance for their outstanding organizational work for this event.

Here's a 30 second capsule look back at the 2014 competition.
