TALENT HUNT HISTORY:
The Talent Hunt Program of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated. is one of several national programs designed to identify and support the non-academic talents of our youth nationwide. The original idea was developed by Brother J. Austin Atkins of Winston Salem, North Carolina, and Brother Dewey Duckett of Rock Hill, South Carolina.
While the idea was conceived in 1945, the first District Talent Hunt program was held in the Sixth District in Charlotte, North Carolina, on April 19, 1946. The need for such a program was born out of the virtually nonexistent opportunity afforded to some American youth to fully develop and express their talents.
The original sentiment concerning the Talent Hunt included this expression: “Creative and outstanding capacities in any honorable activity should be eligible for consideration.” Since 2011, the Mu Mu Mu Chapter has sponsored a Talent Hunt Competition through which the most talented young people in and around the Western Georgia Region have a stage to display their talents. Since then, countless young people have showcased their talents for all to see.
Participation in the Talent Hunt is open for high school students, grades 9th-12th within Douglas, Carroll, and Paulding Counties. Students should have the following forms of trained art:
Music: Vocal and instrumental; classical, semi-classical, gospel and jazz.
Dance: ballet, modern dance and tap.
Speech: Poetry, oration, monologue, etc.
