When the Palace Theater in Waterbury announced that it was launching a virtual talent showcase for students, it didn’t take long before some amazing videos started coming into the Palace. The COVID-EO Student Talent Challenge was open to CT students ages 7 to 19 who reside in Connecticut. Students had to record themselves: singing, dancing, playing an instrument, acting and performing comedy.
The competition was stiff with more than 80 entries from all over the state and over 1,600 voters who played a part in the decision-making through Facebook and Instagram. The winners are in three different categories.
