History of the Talent Hunt


The Talent Hunt Program is one of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity's National Projects.  The first Talent Hunt was held April 19, 1946, in Charlotte, NC.  The need for such a program was born out of the limited opportunities afforded to some American youth to develop and give full expression of their talents.  This program provides exposure, encouragement and financial assistance to talented young high school students.  Presently, the Local and District Talent programs are competitive, whereas the National Program is a demonstration of first place winners from across the nation.


The original statement of the Talent Hunt idea included this expression: "Creative and outstanding capacities in any honorable activity should be eligible for consideration."  As a matter or convenience in presenting a public program, the public displays were limited to the field of music.  Since that time the Talent Hunt Program has been expanded to include all of the arts.
