Area teens are invited to audition for a spot in this year's Washington County Teen Idol competition.

Audition tapes must be submitted for consideration by Saturday, March 1. The Teen Idol competition will take place at The Maryland Theatre on Saturday, April 12.

First prize is $1,000; second prize is $500.

To be considered for a spot in Washington County Teen Idol, submit an audition DVD or video tape with no more than two songs to Washington County Free Library, 200 S. Potomac St. in downtown Hagerstown. Technical help is available for singers who need assistance creating a tape.

Only solo artists will be considered. Performers must be ages 15 to 19. DVD must not contain profanity, nudity or explicit lyrics.


The library seeks teens to serve as ushers during the event; they will earn student service learning hours. Also, local bands will be needed to perform during the Teen Idol show intermission.

To volunteer or to get more information about the competition, call Lisa Key at WCFL, 301-739-3250, ext. 126.
