Showcase the talent of your student body!
Organize a talent show to highlight students’ talents! Everyone has something they they’re good at, and a talent show is a great place for students to shine.
Recruit performers and an emcee or two. Work with the emcee(s) to create the order of the set list, taking into account any set-up or props that need to be prepared.
Hang flyers and campaign on social media to encourage people to attend, and livestream the event on social!
Tips & Suggestions:
- Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse! Practice the acts themselves as well as the time needed between acts.
- Consider charging admission as a fundraiser for other inspirED projects.
- Showcasing what students are doing outside of academics brings attention to the diverse interests and strengths of members from all corners of a school’s community.
- Students thrive when schools provide opportunities for them to showcase a range of talents outside of traditional academics (Snyder, 1999).
