Talent Comes to OHCHS

A mix between the hit shows ‘American Idol’ and ‘Americas Got Talent’, Oxford Hills Got Talent is the new rave in the school. Consisting of singers, dancers, magicians and more, this show is gonna’ rock your shoes off. The contestants that wish to be in the actual show must go through auditions, with judges and peers watching. From there, you wait until the day of Winter Carnival where Mr. Cummings, the headmaster of Key Club, announces the top 10 acts that will perform in the real deal.

Three judges determine who will win the cash prize. The winner receives $200 while the runner-up receives nothing. There is also a crowd favorite contest, the winner of which will also receive $100 cash prize. The three judges are Stacey Hanscom, Barbra Ruth, and Sasha Campbell.

This being the third year of this event, it is already a crowd favorite. People of all sorts attend the event, students, parents, and others in the community that enjoy the arts.

The contestants each do one 4-minute performance, and the top 4 perform again to see who the winner is.

During the event there will be free refreshments in the cafeteria.

All proceeds for the event will go directly to the Key Club.

So if you want to come join in on the fun and support your fellow Oxford Hillians in their art, come to the show. The show is on March 11th at 7 pm in the auditorium. Prices are $5  if you buy before hand and $6 at the door.
