Could you be Joint Base Charleston’s next star?

By 628th Force Support Squadron Marketing Office

Are you a singer or know how to play an instrument with rock star talent? Then Joint Base Charleston wants you to compete in AMC Icon!

Air Mobility Command at Scott Air Force Base, Ill., is conducting its eighth annual AMC Icon talent competition, which is loosely based on the television program, American Idol. But first, participants must compete at the base-level competitions.

The JB Charleston contest is scheduled for Aug. 20, 2015 at the Charleston Club on the Air Base. The contest is open to all JB Charleston ID cardholders who are 18 and older including active duty from all services and their immediate family members, National Guard, Reserves, retirees and DoD civilians. However, only the top active duty Air Force singer will move on to the AMC-level competition.

The top three base-level finalists will receive cash awards of $500, $300 and $200, respectively. The top Air Force finalist chosen will represent JB Charleston at the command-level competition where they will compete against members from AMC installations throughout the Air Force at Scott AFB. The top three AMC finalists will receive cash awards of $1,000, $600 and $400, respectively.

Last year, 1st Lt. Chad Slayton, 437th Operations Support Squadron represented Joint Base Charleston at the AMC-level competition, winning first place. Is another JB Charleston member ready to defend that title? Send in your application today to find out.
