Morgantown High School to Host 'Mohigan Idol'

Posted: Updated:

Monongalia County students will get the chance to showcase their talent Friday night at Morgantown High School.

MHS will host 'Mohigan Idol' for students ranging from elementary to high school.

But the night isn't just about talent.

All the proceeds will be donated to the WVU Children's Hospital.

Each contestant is encouraged to raise money for the event and each dollar collected equals a point added to the contestant's score.

"The reason that we decided to choose a charity like that is it's kind of a take on kids helping kids. It's kind of a relatable cause because no one plans to end up there. And certainly not at that age," said Amanda Jones, of Morgantown High School.

The talent show will start at 7 p.m. at the MHS auditorium.

Admission is free but donations will be accepted.
