This year’s competition in January showcased 20 finalists who performed their talents in front of a sold-out crowd. Contestants were divided into two age groups; youth (17-and-under) and adult (18-and-over). One winner and one runner-up from each category was chosen. Winners received a cash prize along with bragging rights.
“Dixie’s Got Talent” is produced annually by Dixie Scholarship Associates in cooperation with the Dixie Foundation and with the support of the Dixie State University Student Alumni Association. All proceeds from the event go toward providing needs-based scholarships for students who would be unable to continue their education otherwise due to financial or life-changing circumstances.
