HERMON - The Morgan Hill Event Center will be bursting with music during the fourth annual 'Maine's Got Talent' competition next Saturday. Seventeen vocalists and dancers will not only be performing in front of a live audience but also a panel of judges in hopes of earning the $500 cash prize, a trophy, and bragging rights as this year's 'Maine's Got Talent' winner. All the proceeds from the show will benefit the Miss Maine Scholarship Fund, which provides deserving college scholarships to Maine women.

"The seventeen finalists are from all over the state and they range from singers and dancers to an acrobatic performer," said Linda Schoenfeldt, 'Maine's Got Talent' organizer.

12-year-old Catherine Howe of Bangor will be among the vocalists in next weekend's show. She found out about the competition from her godmother.

"I can't wait for it. It's all I've thought about," said Howe. "I'll be singing 'Temporary Home' by Carrie Underwood. I'll be singing and playing it on piano."

Howe is no stranger to public performance. She entered into a similar type of talent show when she was just nine years old and won for her age group. She also lifts her voice in song at various open mike events. And although this year's 'Maine's Got Talent' competition is in her own backyard, she admits she doesn't know any of the other competitors.

"I've seen some of them on YouTube, they sound really awesome," said Howe.

If she is fortunate enough to take home the top prize, she already has plans for her winnings.

"I'd probably save a lot of it. But whatever I do end up spending will probably be music related whether it be supplies or a song book," said Howe.

The fourth annual 'Maine's Got Talent' competition, which is open to the public, will take place Saturday, May 6, at the Morgan Hill Event Center on Route 2 in Hermon. Doors open at 1 p.m., the show starts at 3 p.m. Tickets are $25 each or $15 for children under 12. A silent auction will also be held at the facility from 1:30-2:30 p.m.
