The competition is open to youth 18 years old and younger and all types of talent giving performers an opportunity to showcase their unique talents on stage. This is a true variety show format with singers, dancers, magicians, jugglers, comedians, animal acts and any category in between.
The talent search begins with auditions in April before a panel of judges. Last year over 55 hopeful acts auditioned for the chance of moving on to the finale. Twenty acts are then selected to perform in the show in June and compete for the scholarships.
