A call for contestants has been issued for the Acazing Talent Competition.
The competition, part of the Evangeline Area Agricultural Exhibition and Acadian Festival, has been a fan favourite.
A new French Song Award has been added to the list of prizes to encourage contestants to present songs in French. The bilingual contest, for amateur performers only, includes three categories: children aged 12 years and under, youth aged 13 to 20, and adults aged 21 years and over. There is a maximum of 18 participants, meaning six participants per category.
Cash prizes will be offered to winners in the following categories: Category 1 - $150 and $75, Category 2 - $250 and $125, Category 3 - $400 and $200. Also up for grabs is the People’s Choice Award.
Deadline to register for the contest is Aug. 19.
For more information on the competition and to register, call Edmond Gallant at (902) 854-3417 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The contest will be held on Aug. 29 at 7 p.m. at the Evangeline Recreation Centre in Abram-Village.
