As the general manager of BU Central, Brandon Epstein knows talent, and he knows BU’s got plenty of it.

“There are a ton of talented people here,” says Epstein (SMG’09), noting the open-mics, the student bands, the dancers, and the amateur comedians who’ve graced his stage. “Definitely, I’d say we have the cream of the crop.”

But even Epstein might be surprised at how many hidden skills lie beneath Boston University’s serious academic façade — students who can juggle fire, RAs who unicycle, and a veritable chorus of singing professors.

And what about you?

Can you do impressions, pull a rabbit out of a hat, sing like Pavarotti, or even just belch out a tune? Show us your talent. We’ll show it to BU. And if BU likes it, you get a $300 Apple gift card. Here’s how it works:

1. Submit a video of your talent to BU Today’s contest Youtube page between today and Friday, October 10, 2008. To verify your identity, please include a brief video introduction, giving your name, BU affiliation, and a short summary of your talent, before showcasing your talent.

2. All current BU students, staff, and faculty are eligible to enter.

3. Finalists will be featured on BU Today, where readers’ votes will determine the winners.

4. First prize is a $300 Apple gift card. Second prize is a $100 gift certificate to Barnes & Noble. Third prize is a $50 iTunes gift card.
