Talent Contest

The PbS Kids Got Talent (KGT) Contest was established in 2015 to showcase the talents of youths in PbS facilities and programs. PbS invites all youths in participating correction, detention, assessment and community residential programs to submit an audio or video recording of their talents. A panel of expert and celebrity judges assess the contestants’ overall performance, presence and originality to select the winner. PbS invites the winner to the national award ceremony to perform live.

Don’t miss out on a chance to showcase your facility’s talented youths during the PbS Kids Got Talent Contest! Submit your entries by March 31, 2018.
