Submissions start Feb.

We are excited to launch WATS

Walmart's Associate Talent Search (WATS), a friendly competition to help discover and appreciate the amazing talent of our 2.2 million associates in 27 countries around the globe.

The talent search competition opens February 2014. You will be able to submit your entries on Walmart One and compete for a chance to perform during Walmart's annual Shareholders' week in Bentonville, Ark.

We aren't just looking for singers

We're looking for all kinds of talent: dancers, musicians, comedians, magicians and more—any performance based talent that showcases the amazing genius and unique abilities of Walmart associates. So be thinking about how you will highlight your talent in a fun, short video (that isn't longer than two minutes).

All qualifying video submissions will be showcased on the WATS site

where associates and customers worldwide can vote for their favorites. Voting will take place during March. Approximately 30 videos (of Walmart associates) will be selected for online popular voting and also be judged by a special Walmart Associate Talent Search review panel.

The judges' scores will be added to the popular votes and the six videos with the highest combined score from judges and popular voting will be selected as the winners. Those six winners will travel to Bentonville, Ark. and perform during our annual Shareholders' week.

At Walmart, the heart of our success continues to be driven by you

and the amazing wealth of talent you possess. It's long been our culture to recognize and reward talent while at the same time having fun. We look forward to seeing your amazing gifts in action.
