This year’s Pancake Day Talent show on Feb. 20 will offer a new twist—a chance for audience members to text their votes for a People’s Choice winner at the end of the show. The contestant receiving the most votes will win $200. This is in addition to other prizes to be awarded.
The texting feature will be provided and set up by United Wireless, sponsor of this year’s talent show. At the conclusion of the show, audience members will be given a number to text and can vote for their favorite act. There will be no additional charge for the text, but a person’s normal cell phone service rates will apply. Only one text per phone is allowed.
United Wireless will immediately have the votes tabulated by computer and ready to announce when the other prizes are awarded. Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door. Advance tickets may be purchased at the Tourist Information Center, One Yellow Brick Road; First National Bank in Liberal; or from talent show contestants. For more information, call 620-624-6423.
