The Omega Talent Hunt Program began in 1946 in Charlotte, NC, to tackle the unequal opportunity afforded some American youth and was designed to help them develop and express their talents fully.

For over 70 years, the program continues to bring exposure, encouragement and financial support to young talented youth in performing arts.
