LaGrange to show off its talent again

Published 7:29 pm Tuesday, September 11, 2018

LaGrange Has Talent was held for the first-time last year, and it was a lot of fun. Not only did it give locals a chance to show off their own skills, it also raised money for BLOCKS — Babies Learning On-Course for Kindergarten Success. 

BLOCKS focuses on early childhood development and is working to improve access to high-quality early childhood education.

The contest is organized by the Magnolia Society, the women’s leadership council of the United Way of West Georgia.

If you missed LaGrange Has Talent last year, there’s good news — it’s back again in 2018.

Registration is underway for the entire month of September. To register, all you have to do is post a video on the LaGrange Has Talent website that does not exceed three minutes. 

There’s no age limit, and it can be a single or group act.

Last year’s top 10 included several singing performances, including overall winner Charlie Key, but there was also a pianist, magician and dancers. The variety of acts shows that unique acts have a chance to do well in the contest. We were impressed in year one with all of the talent on stage at Troup County High School’s Fine Arts Auditorium, and we believe year two will be even better. 

We hope the community will get behind this competition again in year two, where it’ll become an annual tradition in the fall.
