Young people can audition online to sing the National Anthem at the Foster Farms Bowl on Dec. 27.
The Livingston-based poultry company is sponsoring the college football matchup for the fourth straight year. It will take place at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara and feature teams from the Pac-12 and Big Ten. The nationally televised game will raise money for anti-hunger efforts.
The auditions are open to soloists and groups up to 18 years old who live in Merced, Stanislaus, San Joaquin or nine Bay Area counties. They can enter by uploading YouTube videos of 30 to 45 seconds. The deadline is Nov. 30. More information is at www.SingatFosterFarmsBowl.com.
Last year, Turlock resident Felisha Dias won the contest, dubbed “Oh Say, Can You Sing.” As the winner, she got to designate a charity for a Foster Farms turkey donation, and she picked the United Samaritans Foundation.
The company will kick off the 2017 auditions with another donation in Felisha’s name — 4,000 servings of holiday turkey to the same group.
This year’s winner will designate a donation of 1,000 meals. Foster Farms also will give 100 meals to a local food bank for each contest entry.
