Registration is now underway for the fourth annual Wellington Idol Competition with a $500 grand prize and three $250 prizes for the runners-up.
Contestants must be individual singers at least eight years old as of March 1. They must reside in Wellington or attend a Wellington school and cannot be professional performers. Previous grand prize winners from Wellington Idol or Wellington Talent Search are ineligible to compete. Contestants will be divided into three age groups: ages 8 to 12, ages 13 to 17 and ages 18 and up.
To register, contestants must submit an application form, proof of age, one head shot and a short performer biography, along with a non-refundable fee of $25 payable to the Village of Wellington. Contestants must also submit a YouTube link of a performance to Cultural Programs and Facilities Manager Joe Piconcelli at firstname.lastname@example.org. Wellington will also accept non-returnable CDs or DVDs of a maximum of four minutes in length in lieu of a YouTube entry. Label your disc with your name, age group, title of the piece and phone number.
Registration can be completed at the Wellington Community Center between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday. The deadline to register is March 5.
