California State Talent Competition

The state’s largest, oldest, and most prestigious youth talent competition! This is our only competition that offers a Scholarship Award and where each participant also receives a trophy. This gives students a reason to continue their studies, and an incentive to perfect their talents. It also allows them to showcase their abilities to friends, parents and the community at large.

We have recently added a new category, Spoken Word.  This is our only competition offering students interested in this field the opportunity to recite a monologue, poem, or verse of any type. Fill out your application today!
