APRIL 12, 2019
at Palisades Charter High School, Mercer Hall, 15777 Bowdoin St.

Presented by The Palisadian-Post, Palisades Charter High School Leadership Class & The Optimist Club of Pacific Palisades

A Palisades tradition, the Miss Palisades (since 1959) and Mr. Palisades (since 1990) Teen Contest has been held to select a young woman and a young man to represent teens in our community. We are looking for Leaders. Creators. Artists. Inventors. Volunteers. In 2018, we started a new tradition, a Teen Talent Contest in the memory of Mr. & Miss Palisades but without the gender selection. A teen talent contest that has no boundaries. And, for the first time ever, this year’s contest is open to students in eighth grade.

Two participants will be selected to represent the Palisades and we are out to find the best and brightest. The Annual Teen Talent Contest is designed to motivate our teens, recognize the role they play in our society, promote unity in our community, assist in gaining self confidence and provide an unforgettable experience of being part of this memorable event. There is nothing to lose and so much to gain! At this fun and entertaining event, contestants will introduce themselves, answer a select question and perform a “talent.”

Special note about talent: Don’t have a “typical” talent like singing, dancing or piano? No worries! Show a video of your sports achievements, show off your DJ skills, do a martial arts demonstration, tell jokes, do silly pet tricks with your dog—the idea is to show YOUR talent and uniqueness. We can even help you fine-tune it.

The two selected Teen Talent Contest winners will each be awarded a cash scholarship prize, a year of free food at Palisades Garden Café, a feature in the Palisadian-Post, and accolades from friends and the community all year long.

Rehearsals take place April 8th & 11th at 4pm at Mercer Hall.
