TE's Got Talent and So Do YOU!


This year, our annual event is all about the talented people that reside right here in Cleveland so we're on the search to find the best talents!

Have a crazy, unique, or impressive talent that you want to share with the world? Well, here's your chance!

What are you waiting for?!

Here's how it works:

1. Send a video no longer than 2 minutes in length to talent@towardsemployment.org by August 31, include your name and a brief description of your talent in the email.
TIP: Submit early so “fans” have more time to engage with your submission on TE social media!

2. Submitted videos will be highlighted on TE Facebook and Instagram accounts. TE will monitor submissions to see which two videos have the most combined comments, likes, shares across Facebook and Instagram.

3. The two fan favorites will be announced on Thursday, September 3 and official voting will open via GiveSmart. Link to be provided with announcement.
TIP: Share the voting link to encourage your network to vote for your talent (or your friend’s).

4. On September 12, the top two will go head-to-head in the finals during the TE’s Got Talent livestream program! TE will recap a short clip of each video, give an update on the voting breakdown to see where each finalist stands, and encourage attendees to vote one last time before the end of the broadcast.

5. The winner, announced live at the end of the program, will be deemed the TE’s Got Talent Winner and will receive a coveted prize!
