Franklin County's Got Talent

"Franklin County's Got Talent" is new this year. It starts at 6 p.m. on Friday, September 5. The show is patterned after "America's Got Talent" and is produced by WHAI and sponsored by Yankee Candle Village, GCTV, The Recorder, and the Franklin County Agricultural Society. Hopefuls including singers, acoustic bands, jugglers, and magicians had to submit a video of their talent to WHAI in one of two age categories. The top ten in each category were chosen by WHAI listeners to compete and will judged by a panel of judges. Prizes are $400, $250, and $100 for each age group and the winners also get to play at the Yankee Candle Fall Festival.
