Molloy College’s sophomore class is putting together a talent show for Molloy’s students and their friends on March 10th. Free for guests and participants, with a first place prize being a choice of $100 cash or a $150 for a club the winner is in, the sophomore class is looking for Molloy‘s students to show off their talents and create the biggest talent show yet. Even providing $50 cash or $100 to the club of choice to the second place winner.

The audience will have an opportunity to vote on who they believe belongs in the finals via Facebook, as a Facebook group will be created for the event. Creating an interactive platform for the audience and a more thorough way for the judges to determine a winner. Along with a say in the final contestants, the audience will have the opportunity to participate in a 50/50 raffle where the second half of the money will be split between the Sophomore class fund and for Camp Boggycreek, a camp for people with special needs.

One of the sophomore class presidents Ryan Gribbin-Burket, who also happens to be one of the judges for the talent show stated, “We want this to be the biggest, best talent show we’ve ever had. We are gonna pack out the stands and it is all for a good cause.” Ryan is hopeful that the school’s step squad and cheerleaders will partake in the event, feeling that it’ll bring further pride for Molloy as it looks to build from last year’s talent show, that showcased various types of talent by Molloy students ranging from rap music covers to solo guitar performances. Burket hopes to see talent outside of music, hoping that students who have a knack for¬†writing show off their poetry and bring variety to a talent show that has been successful in the past.

So whether you sing, dance, or have any other talent you want to share, look for an application for Molloy’s Talent Show due March 3rd.
