For the last three years, the Involvement Center has hosted the much-anticipated Stout’s Got Talent show, a university-wide talent show where students can showcase their unique abilities and compete for prizes. This year, the event is being held on Feb. 19 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Memorial Student Center Terrace.
The types of talent range from singers and guitarists to non-traditional acts such as polka players.
“Last year, we had a hula-hooper, and she’s actually going to be here again this year,” says Megan Antony, involvement center employee in charge of organizing the event. “It’s really different and fun. She’s just crazy with moves that you’d never imagine.”
The Involvement Center provides prizes for the top three competitors, which include a Google Nexus 7 inch Tablet with 32GG memory, Flips Transforming Headphones and a Roku 2 Streaming Player.
“I think students should come because it’s something fun and different to do,” says Antony. “It’s cool to see acts from students around campus that you wouldn’t have known about.”
Antony also states, “Last year we had seven contestants, and there were 80 to100 people who attended.”
She hopes to see an even larger turnout this year as a result of more advertising via Facebook.
The event is completely free to attend and participate in. Visit the Stout’s Got Talent page on OrgSync to register or for more information.
