Mountaineer Week

Mountaineer Idol is Back! And we’re ready to celebrate 13 great years!

We may not have a panel of judges with snarky attitudes, but we still put on a great show! This fall will be our 13th year and the program just keeps getting bigger. Three finalists will emerge from the ongoing elimination rounds and will compete in the program’s Final Competition. Special guests and celebrity judges are at each elimination competition. The Mountaineer Idol will receive $1,000 for first place, $750 will be presented to the second place finisher, and $250 goes to the third place finisher. All monies to the top three students is provided by Coca-Cola. Mountaineer Idol is sponsored by Coca-Cola and American Idol.
