Public voting under way for State Fair ‘Vocal Throwdown’

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana State Fair’s first “Vocal Throwdown” competition attracted 164 young singers from around the state whose audition videos are now available for public voting. The public can vote for their favorite in two divisions at in.gov/statefair/contests/2446.html. There is no limit to the number of times a person can vote.

The contest was open to any non-professional performer 21 years old or younger and a current Indiana resident. The Youth division consists of ages 6 to 15; the Junior division is for ages 16 to 21. A non-professional is defined as anyone who is not a practicing professional making his or her livelihood through musical performing, including anyone who might have a manager, music recording contract or an agreement relating to the use of his or her name or likeness.

The voting runs through July 21. The top 10 vote-getters in each division will be invited to perform on the State Fair’s Main Street Stage on Aug. 3 where they will sing before a panel of judges. The judges will pare down the competitors to five finalists who will perform again on Aug. 10 when a champion will be crowned.

The winners in each division will receive $500 and a trophy. Second place will receive $250; third place will receive $100.

The Indiana State Fair runs Aug. 2-18. For more information, visit www.indianastatefair.com.
