Singing, dancing, comedy, magic tricks – whatever their talent might be, West Virginia University faculty and staff are invited to compete in the 2010 Inaugural Faculty/Staff Talent Show.

The competition will be held on Sunday, Feb. 21 at 3 p.m. in the Mountainlair ballrooms.

There are no limits on the category of the talent, and each act can consist of one to four contestants. There is a time limit of five minutes.

“This event is a lot of fun. It is a great time to show the WVU community how talented you really are,” said event organizer Sonja Wilson.

Five WVU “celebrity” judges will determine the winners by assessing stage presence, quality of the performance, choice of selection and entertainment value.

Prizes will be awarded to first, second and third place winners.

Participants will have time to fine-tune their acts at an optional rehearsal, held on Thursday, Feb. 18 from 6-8 p.m. in the Mountainlair ballrooms.

All participants must register by Friday, Feb. 12. To register call the Mountainlair Administrative Offices at 304-293-2702 or e-mail or .
