The Performance-based Standards (PbS) State/Agency Coordinators Training and Awards Night in Chicago, Illinois is now only a few months away. Participants are waiting to see the results of PbS’ annual Kids Got Talent Contest.

PbS challenges facilities and youths to share their talents with the country and invites the winner to come perform live at the Awards Night. We received over 90 great performance submissions, and after careful deliberation 14 finalists were chosen.

Coming from Southwest Utah Youth Center – Long Term, Andrew N. wrote, played ukulele and sang an original song titled, “Island Mama.” The smooth melody and ukulele chords had everyone at the PbS office dreaming of the beach, and all of our judges loved Andrew’s technique and voice. It’s always impressive to see a contestant write and play their original music!

Congratulations on becoming a finalist, Andrew, and thank you for sharing your talent! Make sure to keep checking back for more on the 2017 Kids Got Talent Finalists!
