POULSBO — The North Kitsap Community Auditorium was filled with enthusiastic guests March 8 as various performers showed just what kind of talent Poulsbo has.
Poulsbo's Got Talent attracted an audience that filled three-quarters of the auditorium; people of all ages voted for their favorite acts of the night. The winner: The Iverson Brothers, a contemporary rock band.
The Iverson Brothers — Sean Jones, Kevin Parmley, Cole Cloward and Ivan Perez — took home the grand prize of $500.
Second place went to the vocal ensemble Just Men, which consists of members of the North Kitsap High School Choir. Just Men won $200.
Third place and $100 went to Poulsbo Middle School eighth-grade violinist Meg Olson.
Gracie Sawicki and Olivia Ingram won the consolation prize of $50 for their duo dancing and singing act "Sisters from other Misters."
The event was a fundraiser that benefits the North Kitsap High School band program. Band director Susan Peters said the amount raised from the event is still being calculated. Peters expects the event to become annual.
North Kitsap School Board President Dan Weedin was master of ceremonies.
Along with performances by students, InMotion Dance Studio entered three dance groups in the competition. Adults got into the act — The Jaybirds, a barbershop quartet; and The Tax Authorities, a rock and blues cover band.
