A virtual talent show, presented by the Palisadian-Post
Entries accepted through Friday, July 17
Voting takes place July 18-31
Winners revealed in the August 6 edition of the Palisadian-Post
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, now, in 2020, for the first time ever, the show is going virtual.
Now through July 17, the Post will accept applications and video footage from teens who would like to throw their hat into the ring. Videos of the talent, along with a summary of the students’ application, will be posted on our website for the community to vote on.
Two participants who live or go to school in the Palisades who just finished eighth through 12th grade in 2020 will be selected to represent the Palisades. 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!
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.
