Be a star

March 31, 2000

Antietam Cable Television and American Movie Classics have teamed up for a talent search that will award a $500 scholarship to a high school student. In addition, the winning student's school will receive a new VCR. The contest, open to all high school students in the Antietam Cable Television service area, is part of AMC's Behind the Screen Test, an outreach program that rewards high school students who have the potential to become the next generation of film stars.

VHS video presentations of 3 to 5 minutes - recorded at a school or community play, drama class, drama performance, monologue or scene study - which highlight a student's talent and charisma will be judged by a panel of Hollywood-based entertainment professionals, including actors, managers and agents.

One national winner will receive a trip to New York including a five-day internship on AMC's original series "Behind the Screen."

The deadline for receipt of entries is midnight, Friday, April 14. VHS videotaped entries must be labeled with the student's name, address and telephone number, as well as the name of his or her high school and local cable operator, Antietam Cable Television. All entries should be mailed to AMC Behind the Screen Test, Bin 114, 4920 Santa Anita Ave., El Monte, Calif. 91731.
