Attention Long Island students! Can you carry a tune? Is a musical instrument your specialty? If so, get your audition DVD or YouTube video submitted now for Long Island’s Got Talent 2017, hosted by the Ward Melville Heritage Organization (WMHO).

Created by WMHO’s Youth Corps, the event gives Long Island students the opportunity to show off their talents this spring. It’s open to students 10-17 years of age in Nassau or Suffolk County who must still be in high school at the time awards are given in November 2017. Talent must be nonprofessional vocal or musical instrument performances. The entry deadline is March 17 and there is a $25 entry fee. Those who are contacted after submitting their audition will be asked to perform at the first-round performance on April 7 at 6:30 p.m. at WMHO’s Educational & Cultural Center, 97P Main Street in the Stony Brook Village Center.

Finalists chosen will also have the opportunity to perform at WMHO’s Sunday Summer Concerts series in July and August, and finals will take place on Nov. 3, 2017 when the winners will be chosen. For full details and Official Entry Form, call 631-751-2244 or visit
