Neighborhood Pride Talent Show

Columbus' Neighborhood Pride program started the Neighborhood Pride Talent Search to outreach to talented Middle School  students and provide them with opportunities to get more involved with their neighborhood and the Columbus Arts community at large.

Students audition at their schools to be a part of the program.  From the auditions, the selected students  will be required to agree to work with their community for 5 service hours. In exchange, Neighborhood Pride Partners in the Columbus arts community offers classes, seminars, and mentoring opportunities to the students in a series of Saturday rehearsals. In December, the students will represent their school and neighborhood.
