We are about two months away from the Performance-based Standards (PbS) State/Agency Coordinators Training and Awards Ceremony in Boston, MA! Participants are anxious to see the Kids Got Talent live performance.

This year, PbS challenged facilities to step outside of the box and participate in the PbS Kids Got Talent Contest. Youths in PbS facilities were again invited to submit video or audio recordings of their talents. With over 80 very entertaining performances, 15 finalists were chosen after careful consideration.

From inside Red Wing Juvenile Facility, Sevion W.’s original spoken word performance of “I Made It” bravely acknowledges the universal fear and self-doubt we all occasionally feel. Throughout the strikingly honest piece, Sevion appraises where he’s from and where he wants to go in the future. Congratulations on becoming a finalist, Sevion, and thank you for sharing your talent!  Make sure to keep checking back for more about the 2016 Kids Got Talent finalists.
