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 Friday at Fox 19 in Queensgate.
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:
