SCC Idol competition to be held Oct. 5
SCC Idol, St. Charles Community College’s own version of “American Idol,” will be a singing competition among SCC students, held at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 5, in the auditorium of the Daniel J. Conoyer Social Sciences Building on the college’s campus in Cottleville.
American Idol fans will enjoy hearing the local talent of SCC’s students in a fun atmosphere. In addition to becoming the 2012 SCC Idol winner, the first place winner will receive a $500 tuition grant from the SCC Foundation.
“This is one of my favorite events at SCC and it has grown every year,” said Mandi Smith, SCC student activities coordinator. “It gives the students on campus an opportunity to showcase their talent in front of friends, family and the community.”
Judges will include representatives from SCC’s faculty and the local community. A fan favorite will also be chosen that night via a text-in voting system, introduced for the first time last year.
The event, which debuted in 2008, will raise funds for multicultural and diversity programming at the college. Multicultural programs are designed to broaden students’ perspectives and enhance their education in a global society. The programs observe nationally recognized heritage months like Native American Heritage Month in November and Black History Month in February.
The public is encouraged to attend and show support for their favorite “idol.” General admission tickets for the event are $5. Admission is free for SCC students with a college ID. Tickets will be on sale at the door the night of the event. Cash only.
