It’s time for the 2015 WJTL Talent Challenge and we’re on the lookout for talented WJTL listeners–we know you’re out there! We want to see and hear your talents. We encourage musicians to enter, but the WJTL Talent Challenge is wide open to any skill that has the potential to impress, entertain or amuse our crowd at Sertoma! Individual performers and groups may enter.
Ten contestants will be chosen to perform their talent on the Weaver’s Garage Stage at the 60th annual Sertoma Chicken BBQ in Long’s Park in Lancaster on Saturday, May 16th (in the afternoon). Then, the audience gets to vote on their favorite performer–and we’ll award prizes to the Top 3! $500 for 1st place, $250 for 2nd place and $100 for 3rd place.
Prizes were made possible by DavCo Advertising, meeting printing and promotional product needs from concept to completion. www.davcoadvertising.com/
