Annual Competition To Highlight Childrens’ Educational, Artistic and Spiritual Accomplishments
Brooklyn, NY – With three successful years spotlighting the myriad talents of Jewish children worldwide already logged in its record books, Jewish Kids Got Talent is once again accepting submissions for its upcoming season.
A project of Tzivos Hashem – Jewish Children International in collaboration with Chabad.org and Chabad houses all across the globe, Jewish Kids Got Talent gives boys and girls from all walks of life a much needed opportunity to share their unique G-d given gifts in a variety of ways. Open to children ages five through fourteen, the competition is designed to allow as many children as possible to have their moment in the spotlight, no matter where their innate abilities may lie, by dividing the contest into three distinct categories.
The Chesed Award, titled “Heart”, gives youngsters a chance to share a special mitzvah they have done or a project that they have coordinated. The Performance Award, known as “Hand”, allows children to showcase a particular talent including playing a musical instrument, writing, art and comedy. Finally the Achievement Award, named “Head”, provides kids with an ability to exhibit their intellectual abilities including memorization, research skills and mastery of difficult concepts.
Submissions, which can be either written or in video form, are currently being accepted and can be viewed on the competition’s website www.JewishKidsGotTalent.com. Viewers will have the ability to vote for their favorite nine entries from the top thirty entries selected by an internal panel of judges. The nine finalists will be flown to New York City along with one family member, where they will take part in the grand finale, which will take place at the December 9th Tzivos Hashem Annual Dinner in New York. Contestants will be competing live for prizes, both for themselves and for the charity of their choice, with the winner in each category chosen live by the dinner audience. Contestants have the options of submitting separate entries to each of the three categories should they choose to do so, but all submissions must be received by November 7th.
Now in its 33rd year, Tzivos Hashem – Jewish Children International, is a global movement which uses various vehicles to educate and inspire the over one million Jewish children who have joined its ranks. Created at the urging of the Lubavitcher Rebbe in an effort to make every Jewish child part of the movement to fill the world with kindness and goodness, Tzivos Hashem has grown over the years to encompass books, magazines, youth groups, Bar Mitzvah, Bat Mitzvah and Birthday clubs, contests, workshops, The Jewish Childrens’ Museum as well as countless expos and global webcasts for children, all dedicated to inculcating our children with the desire to better the world.
By adding Jewish Kids Got Talent to the roster of its offerings, Tzivos Hashem gives children the ability to not only showcase their inherent goodness but also to use it to inspire others to follow in their footsteps.
Contest submissions can be uploaded to JewishKidsGotTalent.com or mailed to Jewish Kids Got Talent, 792 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, New York, 11213.
