Calling all kids – Be part of the “Blueberry’s Clubhouse” talent show!
Do you have a talent? Want to see yourself on TV?
From painting to “flossing,” and singing to juggling – show us the amazing things you can do for a chance to be featured on “Blueberry’s Clubhouse”!
Blueberry is looking for some talented kids in Arkansas to show off their skills at the end of summer talent show. This should be a talent you can perform in front of your classmates (don’t be crude or rude), and it needs to be original.
Have your parent film your talent with their camera or phone (no more than 30 seconds) and send it Arkansas PBS. See our at-home taping tips here.
Parents, for each entry, please include your child's first and last name, age and hometown. If you'd like to be entered to win a Arkansas PBS KIDS swag bag, please also include your mailing address.
Plus, by submitting your talent show video, you'll be entered to win one of 10 pairs of tickets to the Museum of Discovery! We'll add your name to the random drawing, and winners will be notified by email Aug. 4.
All talent show videos must be submitted by close of business Monday, Aug. 3.
Check out a new episode each week!
Blueberry, assisted by Camp Counselor Carol and special guests, will introduce various topics to help young viewers learn and play each day. Episodes will include:
