There’s still time to register for auditions to be crowned king or queen of college and win a share of RO3,000 worth of prizes in our super cool competition

If you’ve just started at college and think you have star quality, then this is your time to shine as Y launches a talent hunt to find the coolest student on campus.

We’re trawling 10 colleges in Muscat to unearth extraordinary gems among freshers (first year students). Those with the Y Factor stand a chance of winning great cash prizes or a spot on the catwalk of a special fashion show.

We’ve already had lots of applications from students eager to prove they’ve got what it takes – and there’s still time to register your name for an audition spot in front of our panel of judges.

Presented by Splash, the Middle East’s largest fashion retailer and part of the Landmark Group, powered by Ford Figo and in association with NESCAFE 3 in 1, Y’s Coolest Fresher will be visiting 10 colleges over the course of the next few weeks.

We’re looking for the most gifted freshers the city has to offer. Whether it’s a star turn in singing, dancing, football freestyles or some other exceptional talent, we hope to see an array of skills.

Those who impress our judging panel and show they have the Y Factor could win cash or be selected to take part in a super cool fashion show at the Grand Finale.

Excitement is building and we’re expecting the standard to be high as students strut their stuff on stage. Auditions will be held at all 10 colleges, so if you attend any, come and support your fellow students in the spotlight and cheer them on to reach the final.

But only two can ultimately win. By the end of the competition, the best boy and girl will be crowned the coolest freshers in Muscat and walk away with RO250 cash each. On top of that, they’ll have the street cred of knowing that they are the talk of their college.
