Question about the verb 'to showcase'?

Is it correct to say 'showcase something TO someone' or is this type of construction wrong in English?

Update:

Thank you. I couldn't find any instances of this use online so I thought it would be wrong.Speaking & writing in a foreign language is a constant challenge, but you need to enjoy the good parts of that process because you never truly stop learning.

    Please give the full "construction" you are talking about. It is unusual, and it may be better to say "to showcase [something] FOR [someone]" or even to omit TO or FOR altogether. To showcase something ordinarily implies to showcase it for the public in general, so it isn't necessary to say it. But it would be possible to say something like this:

    The science fair is a way to showcase the students' work for their family members and the general public.
