2022 Kappa Omega Talent Hunt
The Talent Hunt program of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. is one of several national programs designed to identify and support the youth of our nation and the world. The original idea was created by the 9th Grand Basileus, Brother J. Alston Atkins of Winston Salem, North Carolina, and Brother Dewey Duckett of Rock Hill, South Carolina. The need for such a program was born out of the unequal opportunity afforded to some American youth to develop and give full expression to their talents. Our local participants were Ms. Ivory Dieujuste and Ms. Crystal Echeverria. Our overall winner goes on to compete at the annual Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., Second District Talent Hunt competition where the competition features the overall winners from more than a dozen chapters representing the states of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.
Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Talent Hunt contestants have appeared on the Ted Mack Original Amateur Hour, at the Apollo Theater, Radio City Music Hall, Philadelphia Academy of Music, Philadelphia Civic Center, New York City, Washington, DC Centers for the Performing Arts, the Eastman Theater, etc. The Talent Hunt program has been very rewarding to the brotherhood of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. and to many talented youth. We will continue to search for and support our gifted youth!
