The annual PbS Kids Got Talent Contest invites all youths in PbS facilities and programs across the country to submit their talents for a chance to show off their skills. This year, Performance-based Standards (PbS) received 30 entries and the competition was extremely tough. After careful consideration, 12 finalist performances from 8 PbS facilities were selected and shared with the Kids Got Talent Contest Judge Panel.

Each of the 12 performances will be featured in their facility’s 2020 PbS Kids Got Talent Contest Finalist Spotlight blog over the coming weeks as our judges determine a solo winner and a group winner. The winners will be selected based on creativity, stage presence and talent.

About the author



PbS measures and monitors facility practices by collecting and reporting data from administrative records and survey responses from youths, staff and families to provide a holistic picture of the conditions and quality of life in residential facilities, highlights the practices that are effective in promoting youths’ healthy maturation and identifies those that are not. PbS data is reported every April and October.  PbS trains staff to use the information to change practices and support reforms implementing the adolescent development approach.

PbS has been a partner in assisting this facility to become a dynamic work environment that is not satisfied with maintaining the status quo.
