The inaugural “So You Think Kent Has Talent” competition had more than 200 people attend the show Saturday night at the Kent-Meridian Performing Arts Center and more than $3,000 was raised for Kent Youth and Family Services. That $3,000 includes $1,017 raised through audience votes for their favorite performer. Local sponsors paid for the cash prizes.

Judges picked Brenna Benson, a Kentlake High School sophomore, as the winner over the 14 other finalists at the show who had advanced two weeks ago from a field of 50 contestants.
