Czech Republic: Nationwide Talent 2018 competition for children from drop-in clubs holds its final show

20.12.2018 9:20

Last week the House of Culture in Kadaň, Czech Republic saw the staging of the final evening performance of Talent 2018. This is the eighth time the competition has been held for children from drop-in clubs all over the Czech Republic.

The children competed in dancing, performing on musical instruments and singing. The jury for the final evening was comprised of the lyricist and poet Michal Horáček; a finalist in the Miss Czech Republic competition of 2014, Veronika Kašáková; the Mayor of Kadaň, Jiří Kulhánek; and other jurors from whom the contestants received feedback and then their point scores after their performances.

"I immediately accepted this invitation because I really like the fact that talented young people are getting an opportunity to show off what they have been working on and also to hear an audience respond to them. It's not just a matter of applause, you learn something about yourself that can turn you into an adult, self-confident person," Horáček explained to ROMEA TV.

"I'm a girl from a children's home who grew up not far from here in Vysoká Pec, and for that reason I believe I belong here, not just among children from children's homes, but also among those who don't have absolutely easy lives, and I come support them whenever I can," Kašáková told ROMEA TV. The event was held by the organizations Světlo Kadaň, z.s. and Tma Jirkov, z.s.
