The winner of "Suburban Chicago's Got Talent" will receive an expenses-paid trip to the 2014 "America's Got Talent" audition at a time and place to be determined. Last year, the top 20 suburban finalists were invited to audition for the network show.
There's also another prize, which will be determined by audiences voting for the Fan Favorite online and at the live competitions.
"Suburban Chicago's Got Talent" auditions will be from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday through Saturday at the Metropolis Performing Arts Centre, 111 W. Campbell St., Arlington Heights. Further details on the contest, and the signup form, are at metropolisarts.com/scgtauditions.
