Smarter Than A Fifth Grader Talent Search

WXIX-TV (Fox 19) and WKRQ-FM (Q102) are looking for the smartest graduating fourth graders to compete for an audition for Fox's hit "Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader."

Kids who are graduating from fourth grade can call a Q102 hotline, 513-699-4424, and tape a 30-second audio audition. Already 60 kids have called, says Jenn Jordan, half of Q102's Jeff and Jenn morning team. Jeff and Jenn will pick 10 finalists by Friday noon and invite them to videotape auditions at 4 p.m. Friday at Fox 19 in Queensgate.

The local winner from the 10 will be guaranteed an audition Saturday in Chicago before producers of the Fox series. However, the winner and his/her family are responsible for travel arrangements to Chicago.

Entrants must be graduating fourth graders registered for fifth grade for the 2007-08 school year, Fox says. To read more about the local contest, go to:

Open auditions begin at 8 a.m. Saturday at Chicago’s Navy Pier. Other audition sites are Atlanta (June 5), Las Vegas (June 8), Los Angeles (June 11) and New York (June 16).
