Video of the winning acts and highlights from the 2008 Talent Show

A dozen students sang, performed, and danced while participating in this year's annual Talent Show last month. Sponsored by Gettysburg College's International Club, the event drew a large crowd and cash prizes were awarded to the top three performances.

"It is fun to have an event that showcases talent and allows people to have fun," said Daiji Kawamura, a senior physics major from Singapore. "It was eye-opening for everyone to see the amazing talent we have on campus. It was tough for the judges to choose the winners."   

Videos of the winning acts and highlights of the entire show are available here.

This year's winners were: First Place - $150 to Tyreen Sims, a sophomore majoring in psychology from Bronx, N.Y., poetry reading; Second Place - $100 to Chris Laycock, a junior majoring in sociology from Princeton, N.J., guitar and singing; and Third Place - $75 to Sebastian DiNatale, a sophomore majoring in political science and minoring in Italian from Voorhees, N.J., and Jermarco Bennett, a first-year student from Baltimore, M.D., interpretive dance.

The International Club seeks to promote a multicultural exchange of perspectives between international and American students, faculty, administrators, staff, and members of the local community. The club provides both a support system and leadership opportunities for international students and is responsible for planning various activities and outings in conjunction with the international student coordinator's office. International and American students alike are encouraged to make informal presentations to the club describing their native lands, examining the unique features of their cultures, and offering personal insights on important social and political issues.
