The Vancil Performing Arts Center of Quincy is looking for contestants for its "Tri-State's Got the Talent" show May 6.

Vancil's "Team Dancin' For A Cure" is organizing the event, and the members have been raising money this year for Relay For Life of Adams County. All proceeds will go to Relay For Life and cancer research.

The local talent competition is for ages 5 and older. Age categories are 5-10, 11-14, 15-18 and adult. Entry fee is $25 for each act of five or fewer people, and $5 for each additional person. Each entrant will receive an event T-shirt.

All types of talent are welcome, from singing or playing instruments to dance teams. Cash prizes will be awarded for the top three acts in each age category, with first place winning $250, second place $100 and third $50.

The event starts at 2 p.m. inside John Wood Community College's Mary Ellen Orr Auditorium in Quincy.
