We've narrowed down our 2016 Wanna Be A ZJ contest contestants to eight finalists.

Tryouts were held during Alignment Rockford's fourth annual Academy Expo Sept. 29 at the BMO Harris Bank Center in Rockford.

A panel of 97 ZOK staff members chose their favorite video from each participating high school.

You can vote for your favorite finalist by watching his or her YouTube video. The finalist with the most views on his or her video at the end of the day on Oct 17 will get to co-host one show with the Steve Shannon Show.
