PICKENS COUNTY—Pickens County Has Talent is back
The School District of Pickens County is setting the stage for talents ranging from breathtaking to bizarre, with a winner to be crowned during a live concert on Feb. 23 at the Easley High School Auditorium.
Auditions will be held at the four county schools—Daniel High, Easley High, Liberty High and Pickens High—and are open to anyone who lives or works in Pickens County.
Proceeds from ticket sales and sponsorships go to the school district to help pay for supplies for teachers, and the winner receives a cash prize.
Twelve contestants will be chosen from each auditorium to compete in a preliminary concert for each of the four areas. Of those 12, three finalists from each area will be chosen by audience vote for the final contest. The judges have an option to “save” a fourth contestant.
The district will post updates about the competition on the Pickens County Has Talent Facebook page and Twitter account (@PCHasTalent)
Danielle Yother, last year’s winner with a talent-trifecta of vocals, guitar and mandolin, will be giving an encore performance at the Grand Finale.
Tickets for each show are $5 per seat.
