Pennsylvania singers are invited to enter Oh, Say, Can You Sing?, a star-spangled sing-off to win a chance to sing at the 2024 Pennsylvania Farm Show.
The show runs Jan. 6 through 13 and each morning will start by featuring an individual or group singing the national anthem. Top vote-getters may also be selected to sing at special events such as the opening ceremony on Jan. 6, officials said.
“Our 2024 theme, ‘Connecting Our Communities,’ invites Pennsylvanians to celebrate the things that unite us,” Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding said in a release. “There’s no better way to start each day than by connecting Farm Show visitors with their pride in what makes our country and our commonwealth great.”
The contest is open to Pennsylvania residents — individuals and groups — of all ages. Contestants can enter by emailing a YouTube link to a video of themselves singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” without instrumental accompaniment to email@example.com or by uploading their video or YouTube link to the comments of the Pennsylvania Farm Show Facebook page posts about the contest. Entries can be submitted until 11:59 p.m. Nov. 12.
Finalists will be posted for fan votes by Facebook reactions from Nov. 14 through Nov. 21 at 11:59 p.m. on the Farm Show Facebook page. Ten finalists will be announced on Facebook, then notified by email of the day they are scheduled to sing.
Winners will receive a free parking pass for the day and must be present at the Farm Show Complex by 7:45 a.m. the day they are selected to sing. A winner will sing at 8 a.m. each day.
Full contest rules and instructions are available on the Farm Show Facebook page. For more information about the Farm Show, go to farmshow.pa.gov.
