It's so easy to enter:
Students can upload videos of performances, narrated videos of artwork, science and technology inventions and more, into their specific categories. (We’re also issuing specific challenges each week, such as “perform your grandparents’ favorite song from back in the day for them – because they miss you!”)
All entries will be organized by category and posted after screening for appropriate content for public viewing. This is bringing order to the thousands that are otherwise being submitted via Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and so on.
Weekly talent shows:
In addition, each week starting in late April we'll produce a new online nationwide high school talent show featuring randomly selected entries across all categories.
We’ll also feature staff favorites, and we hope guest celebrities will pick their favorites too (these can be random if preferred). Each weekly episode will also include remote interviews with featured performers, celebrities, teachers and so on, along with additional inspirational, educational and entertaining content.
Weekly talent contests:
Depending on the feedback we receive from entrants, we may invite fans to be “casting directors” and vote for their favorites from among all entries. This introduces a separate competitive element to the shows. At the end of the season (8-12 weeks TBD), we’ll present each of the performances by category and encourage fans to vote for the nationwide winner in each category. When it is safe to gather and travel, we hope to have each winner perform live or present their artwork and inventions.
