Talent Hunt is an internationally mandated program of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. The first Talent Hunt was held on April 19, 1946, in Charlotte, North Carolina. The necessity for Talent Hunt was born out of the reality that there were limited opportunities afforded to some populations in the country for youth to give full expression to their artistic and creative abilities.
Talent Hunt provides exposure, encouragement, and financial assistance to talented high school students in grades 9 through 12. Students compete for scholarships and the opportunity to showcase their talent to a distinguished group of judges. Local and District Talent Hunt programs are competitive. The International Program is a demonstration of first-place winners from around the world.
