    Talent contest winners at this year’s event included: Celine Neilsen, singer, first place; Chris Bakeman, comedy, second place; and Brendan O’Colmain, “Lounge” singer, third place.

    Since the scholarship inception in 1989, $519,000 has been awarded to Maui County high school graduating seniors.

    In 2015, a total of  41 college scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each, were awarded to graduating Maui country high school seniors.  The funds raised during the weekend event are still being tallied, but the organization gave out $41,000 in scholarships last year and are hoping to beat that this year.  Last year’s RAM’s Got Talent event raised $20,000 of the total funds awarded.
