SCC Idol, St. Charles Community College's own version of “American Idol,” is a singing competition among SCC students, to be held at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 18, in the auditorium of the Daniel J. Conoyer Social Sciences Building on the college’s campus in Cottleville.

A performance from the 2012 SCC Idol.

American Idol fans will enjoy hearing the local talent of SCC’s students in a fun atmosphere. In addition to becoming the 2013 SCC Idol winner, the first place winner will receive a $500 tuition grant from the SCC Foundation. 

“This is a fun event that gives students the opportunity to showcase their talents in front of friends, family and the community,” said Mandi Smith, SCC student activities coordinator. “The event grows in popularity each year, and we look forward to this year’s showing.”

Judges will include representatives from SCC’s faculty and staff and the local community. A fan favorite will also be chosen that night via a text-in voting system. 

The event, which debuted in 2008, raises funds for multicultural and diversity programming at the college. Multicultural programs are offered to broaden students’ perspectives and enhance their education in a global society. The programs also observe nationally recognized heritage months like Native American Heritage Month in November and Black History Month in February.

The public is encouraged to attend and show support for their favorite idol. General admission tickets for the event are $5. Admission is free for SCC students with a college ID. Tickets will be on sale at the door the night of the event (cash only).
