Contest to showcase UWindsor talent

Students, staff, and faculty are encouraged to show off their talents in the first annual UWindsor’s Got Talent competition, hosted by the UWin Proud campaign.

The contest kicks off today — Nov. 11 — and individuals can take part in the contest by filling out the contest form, uploading a photo or video, or simply using the hashtag #UWindsorsGotTalent on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.

“We are looking for all kinds of talents,” says Niya Vanganur, an Ignite student in the Office of Student Experience who is helping to organize the contest. “Whether you are a singer, dancer, scientist, puppeteer, chef, make-up artist — anyone who thinks they have a talent should submit an entry.”

Submissions are due no later than Tuesday, Nov. 17. All entries will be displayed in a gallery once they are received. Viewers will vote for their favourites once per day through Nov. 18.

The submission with the most votes will be crowned the winner, receiving a $200 prepaid Visa, UWin Proud prize pack, and an official UWindsor’s Got Talent certificate.

A participation draw will also take place for a UWindsor sweater, courtesy of the Campus Bookstore.

Rules are available on the contest website; questions can be directed to studentexperience@uwindsor.ca.
