How you can get on TV

First off, will you be in Oshkosh, WI this August for the International Pathfinder Camporee? If your answer is yes, then so far so good! That's where you will want to be if you want to get on national (if not international) television! Here's how to go about it:

Step 1: During your time at the Courage to Stand Camporee, look for the "Talent Tent." It's a place where you can perform your God-given musical talents. There will be a grand prize for the talent contestants.

Step 2: Be one of the top finalists. The top finalist for each day (Tuesday-Saturday) will be offered a chance to be on a musical program on TV.

According to the CTS Newsletter, Hope Channel will provide a 30 minute professionally produced DVD of the top three winners. Note: Expenses of travel to Hope Channel's headquarters in Silver Springs, MD, housing, and other expenses will have to be paid by the winners and/or their families.

For more info, contact Scott Steward (Hope Channel Marketing Director) at scotts@hopeTV.org or call (301) 680-5218.
