As part of their 2009 Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) kickoff, the Department of Interior (DOI) held auditions for their first annual “DOI’s Got Talent” competition. The actual event will take place on December 9, but DOI employees flocked to their Sidney Yates Auditorium today to witness fellow co-workers try-out for a spot in the final round. Camilla Ihenetu, Bruce Sheaffer, Lindsay Dubin, and Gareth Rees were the official judges and it was up to them to either give a thumbs up or down to the participants.
