Acts that are family-friendly and adhere to the competition guidelines can register for the remaining audition spots at dailyherald.com/events.

Initial auditions are set from 4 to 10 p.m. Thursday and Friday, June 5 and 6; 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, June 7; and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 8. Auditions and subsequent rounds of competition for the top 20, top 15 and top 10 acts all take place at the Prairie Center for the Arts in Schaumburg. The top 10 acts will also perform in August at the Taste of Arlington Heights, when the ultimate winner and Fan Favorite will be announced.

The new top prize package is called the "STARter Kit," which features a performance as an opening act for a major headliner at the Arcada Theatre in St. Charles, a professional concert-style photo shoot, a promotional video drawn from competition footage and professional talent mentoring. The Fan Favorite prize, ultimately decided by voting online at dailyherald.com, is a Funjet Vacation for two.

Suburban Chicago's Got Talent is co-sponsored by the Daily Herald, the Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce and the Prairie Center for the Arts in Schaumburg.
