Pacific Palisades Teen Talent Contest Goes Virtual | Pacific Palisades
Calling all talented teens: The Pacific Palisades Teen Talent Contest is taking place this summer—and this time, the Palisadian-Post is hosting it virtually.
Taking the place of the in-person show, typically held in the springtime on the Palisades Charter High School campus, the Post will present the same caliber of talent just in a virtual fashion to adhere to Safer at Home orders.
Anyone who lives or attends school in the Palisades who finished eighth through 12th grade in 2020 is invited to submit a video of a talent, ranging from singing to dancing, filmmaking and more.
Videos and a short bio about participants will be displayed on the Post’s website. Community members will then be invited to vote—with two winners selected to represent the Palisades for the next year. A cash scholarship, free food at Palisades Garden Café and a feature in the newspaper will also be awarded to the winners.
The deadline to submit a video is July 17. Voting will take place between July 17 and July 31, with a winner revealed in the August 6 edition of the Post.
