WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Saturday, students from schools all over D.C. will compete against each other in Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.’s annual Talent Hunt competition, hosted at Paul Charter School in Northwest.

This competition will showcase talented young D.C. artists and their singing, dancing, dramatic and instrumental talents as they vie to win and go on to the regional and national competitions.

Aria Jackson, who is in tenth grade at Archbishop Carroll High School, said, “This is a wonderful opportunity for me and other students to perform in front of an audience with judges.  I know the competition will be tough, but I am ready.”

There are five D.C. chapters of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity that collaborate to host this event — two alumni chapters, and three undergraduate chapters.

“We put in a great deal of work hosting this competition each year, but it is worth it when you witness the incredible talent of these young people,” said Talent Hunt Committee Chair Wade Boykin.

Talent Hunt is one of several national programs of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.
