There will be a panel of judges in an "America’s Got Talent" - style competition at the final performance, and contestants will have the chance to win $1,000 (Biggest Showoff) or $500 (Audience Favorite) and perform on the HT@MTC stage before a packed crowd. This year we are adding to the Audience Favorite award by offering two categories, one exclusively for students/alumni and the other for faculty/staff, both valued at $500.
