On Friday April 25, 2014, at 6:00 p.m., the 2nd Annual Z-Man Scholarship Foundation - Talent Within competition will be held at City Bible Church, located at 9200 Northeast Fremont Street.

This event is being hosted by the Z-Man Scholarship Foundation and the Portland Police Bureau Youth Services Division and being sponsored by City Bible Church, 98.7 FM "The Bull" and Live 95.5 FM.

The Z-Man Scholarship Foundation is named after Portland Police Officer Mark Zylawy, who was killed off-duty on January 27, 2008. After his death, friends and fellow officers created the Z-Man Scholarship Foundation to offer scholarships to deserving students who have a commitment to community involvement.

Amazingly talented students from 12 Portland High Schools will come together on one stage to compete for up to $5,000 in scholarships.

Singers, dancers, musicians and comedians will all perform for you and a panel of judges; including Portland Police Chief Mike Reese and renowned pianist Michael Allen Harrison.

Community members of all ages are encouraged to come and support these young people whose amazing talents are thriving right here in Portland.

Tickets are $10.00 for adults, and $5.00 for students. Proceeds benefit the Z-Man Scholarship Foundation.

All interested media can come to dress rehearsal on Thursday April 24 at City Bible Church from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Each student act will be practicing their performance on the talent show stage. Media will have an opportunity to interview the students at this time.

The media is also welcome at the show, which runs from 6:00 p.m. to approximately 9:30 p.m. on Friday April 25.
