On Sunday, Feb. 23, The Pittsburgh Project was the host and strong supporter of the Omega Talent Hunt, sponsored by the Iota Phi chapter of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. This was the second year The Pittsburgh Project hosted the event. Ten talented local high schoolers competed for money and recognition in the areas of vocal music, instrumental music, dance, drama, and visual arts. Fraternity members, family, and friends cheered with high praise for each student.
Winners were Trent Seeberger of Brashear for his instrumental interpretation, Cahrie Samuel of Westinghouse Arts Academy for dance, Amajah Hall of CAPA for art, Najah Cobb of Nazareth Prep High School for vocals, and Eliyah Roberts of Shadyside Academy for Dramatic Interpretation. The overall winner was Jordan Mcneal for his vocal performance. Mcneal will represent the Iota Phi chapter during the 72nd Second District Conference and will be competing against over 30 students from five states for scholarship monies.
