Boost-A-Thon: La Canada’s Got Talent

Here’s a chance for your kids to do something fun with their friends, get their 15-60 seconds of fame, and do it for a great cause. Please help us by asking your kids to create a brief video clip for Boost-A-Thon.

Boost-A-Thon: La Canada’s Got Talent is a virtual event premiering on YouTube in December. The two hour show will feature LCHS 9-12 and 7/8 students submitting student-created YouTube type videos, as well as performances in music, choral, theatre, LCTV, comedy videos, and more.

We’re asking all students to submit fun content over the next few weeks and submit their videos to LCHSBoostathon@gmail.com.

Please go to the Boosters website for more information.

Students, please make short videos (15 seconds to 1 minute in length) with your iPhone or home video camera and send us the digital files as MP4 or QuickTime Movie formats. Submissions are due by Monday, November 2nd!

Instrumental Music Note: Mr. Stone, Ms. Munday, and Mr. Myers will be working with Boosters to make sure our groups are included in Boost-A-Thon.
