50 Virtual Talent Show Ideas

50 Virtual Talent Show Ideas Image Blog (1)

Here at ClassTag, we love bringing together our community of teachers, parents, and students! This year, for our 2nd annual #SchoolsGotTalent talent show, the stakes are even higher thanks to our friends at @FirstActMusic.

The top 5 submissions will receive a First Act musical instrument of choice such as this super-cool America’s Got Talent Microphone…plus a chance to compete LIVE to win a $1,000 grant toward their school

The Rules are simple:

  1. Make sure your Instagram account is set to public (or else we can’t view your awesome performances!) 
  2. Post a video of your child/student’s talent performance on Instagram by 4/5/2021
  3. Tag @schoolsgottalent, @classtagme, follow AND tag @FirstActMusic to qualify 

ClassTag will then repost submissions to the @schoolsgottalent handle for our community of followers to vote by “liking” their favorites. The contestants with the top 5 votes will compete in front of our special-guest judges for a chance to win the grand prize of $1,000 toward their school on 4/15/2021! 


Tips and Tricks to Shine

We know you might be camera shy, so here are some quick pro-tips to get you started:

Keep the video short (30-60 seconds). Instagram Reels is a great way to set your video apart!

Get the entire community involved by making this a school-wide effort and make sure to “vote” for your favorite acts by liking the Instagram reposts on @schoolsgottalent.
