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.

Two youths from Kenneth Rubenstein Juvenile Center in West Virginia, Zachary G. and Tanner C., submitted an original song which they wrote and performed vocals and guitar. The judges were all captivated not only by the songwriting and transporting lyrics, but by their powerful vocal performance and rock-steady guitar chords. Stay tuned for more group performance finalists in the coming weeks!

Congratulations on becoming finalists, Zachary and Tanner, and thank you for sharing your talents!
