TD Youth Talent Showdown 2012

Every year, TD Youth Talent Showdown attracts a large crowd of youths that have passions and dreams on their talents. They share their skill, experience and creativity to our community. At the same time, we see them grow and improve from audition, prelims and show us their best performance in the Finals. Together, the contestants and the competition develop a growth of community passion, pride in exposure and friendship.

This year, TD Youth Talent Showdown is back again for another exciting competition! If you think you've got talent and you are between the ages of 13-20, this is your chance to shine! Not only are Youths encouraged to participate in a community event, they also learn how they can become a future star.
