THE butterflies will begin to tamper with students' stomachs as they count down the last day until the Gladstone Eisteddfod.
Fourteen-year-old talented musician and dancer Jason Carter will be one of many students preparing their pieces for their moment on stage.
Jason will perform in various categories over the next few weeks for the violin, piano and dance.
Jason said he had been dancing since he was five, playing the violin since he was six and the tickling the ivories since he was seven.
'No matter how many time I take to the stage I still get nervous,' he said.
He said the eisteddfod involved months of preparation including hours of practice each day including on weekends.
'I have only recently finished the Rockhampton Eisteddfod where I received first, second and two highly commended for the piano,' Jason said.
'Term three for me is extremely busy and stressful, however it's all worth it.'
