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 80 great performance submissions, and after careful deliberation 14 finalists were chosen.

Out of Central Oklahoma Juvenile Center, Eric M. wowed the judges and us here at PbS with his on-point knuckle drumming and amazing sense of rhythm. His drumming performance showcases not only his talent, but also his dedication to his instrument – that technique is impressive!

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