ROCHESTER, N.Y. Finalists competed Saturday for a classical vocal performance scholarship.

Student Jackson Haywood was the top prize winner. The competition is held by the William Warfield Scholarship Fund, based in Rochester.

The vocal competition is for Black high school students pursuing education in classical vocal performance, a field in which Black singers have been historically under-represented.
