Who knows, we might have just seen the next Tina Fey, Will Smith or the Roots strut their stuff on a Philly stage. The 2014 Main Line Talent Show introduced the area to 28 of the most, well, talented kids around, and MetroKids was proud to play a role in the big show. Prizes were awarded in two age categories, 8-12 and 13-16, but to our eyes and ears, everyone who performed was a winner. So we extend a hearty congratulations to all the participants — we can’t wait to see you do your thing again soon.

The arts are so important in the development of our kids. Not every child is a sports star, some choose to shine in other ways! Keep supporting art programs in the schools!
