"This School's Got Talent" Contest

Celebrity judges from GRAMMY Award-winning super-group Hootie & The Blowfish (HBF) will help select the top entries in the BB&T "This School's Got Talent" contest.  HBF bass guitarist Dean Felber and lead guitarist Mark Bryan will join their former tour manager and current annual golf tournament director Paul Graham, to narrow down the pool of talent.  The final videos will then be posted online and open to your votes!

The student deemed most talented will earn the opportunity to perform LIVE at the televised “South Carolina Teacher of the Year Celebration” on May 1 in Columbia. The winner will also be invited to perform at the opening concert for the BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation on May 17. BMW - presenting sponsor of the state Teacher of the Year Celebration - will allow the talent show winner to perform with members of the Hootie and the Blowfish Band and other celebrity performers.

The contest is open to public school students between grades 1 and 12 in all South Carolina school districts. To enter, adults 18 or older may submit videos of students showcasing their skills on the South Carolina Future Minds Facebook page. Videos must be at least thirty seconds in length and may not exceed five minutes in length.
The submission period for video entries begins February 4, 2013 and ends midnight (EST) on Sunday, March 8, 2013. Finalists will be announced on or before March 15, and public voting via Facebook will begin afterward. Finalists will be announced on the SCFM Facebook page. 

The winner will be announced on April 1, 2013. Viewers may cast their vote for each video one time per day during the voting period. There are no age restrictions on voting.
