MTV’S “MADE” Hosts Open Auditions At 2010 Illinois State Fair

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – Do you want to be MADE?  Have you ever dreamed of being a reality TV star?  Here's your chance!  MTV’s “MADE” series will be holding open auditions at the Illinois State Fair Aug. 13-15.

The auditions will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Main Street across from the Jungle area.  Casting will be done on-site and fairgoers interested in participating in the auditions should come prepared with their idea of what they would like to be “MADE” into.

MTV’s two-time Emmy-award winning series, “MADE,” is looking for fairgoers between the ages of 15-22, who have big personalities and are willing to share their story with MTV.  “MADE” is a series about making dreams come true and proves that with hard work -- and a little help from MTV -- any goal is attainable.  In previous seasons, “MADE” has helped to turn young adults into rappers, pageant queens, homecoming kings, cheerleaders, skateboarders and surfers, as well as to lose weight and become physically fit.

For more information, visit one of the following websites:  http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1641671/20100616/story.jhtml or www.illinoisstatefair.info.

The Illinois State Fair will be held Aug. 13-22.
