Winona State's got Talent

Winona State's Got Talent Show

WSU is sponsoring the annual student talent show during Homecoming and we want you to showcase your special skills! Whether it is dancing, singing, playing an instrument, spoken word or anything else special under the sun, show us what you've got!

Audition Information

Online registration for the talent show auditions must be submitted by Sept. 14. Auditions for the final talent show will take place during the week of Sept. 17 (time and location TBA).

Contestants should prepare 3-4 minutes of their talent for a panel of judges who will be looking for things such as creativity, stage presence and showmanship. A piano will be available. If you need background music, please provide your own player.

Final Talent Show

The final acts are selected from a competitive audition process and will perform during the Homecoming Court Coronation Ceremony on Sunday, Sept. 30 at 7:30pm in Somsen Auditorium. The audience will vote for the top 3 acts so make sure to bring your favorite mobile device so you can vote!
