About Us


Heartland Talent Showcase is a Non-Profit Organization. It is a group effort from many
different communities in the local area coming together to help inspire young talented people
and to boost their self-esteem. Hopefully it will also increase pride in the community and the area
as well. We plan to constantly grow, while at the same time not lose the basic beliefs that brought us
together in the first place.


We gladly welcome any communities in the Southeast Missouri, Southern Illinois, and
Western Kentucky Areas to join the organization. Together we can make a difference for the
talented people who may never get that chance to shine.


How it works is each local community hosts it's own Talent Show for the youth in their area. Then finalist are
selected from those competitions and will compete at the end of the season for the prizes. There are
Rules & Guidelines that each community must follow to make sure that it is completely fair for everyone. Each
member will be responsible for hosting their own show and following the Rules & Guidelines.
