Seattle Center programs Student Showcases in order to provide entertainment as part of seasonal events, and to give public and private schools and youth performance groups the opportunity to share their artistic accomplishments with family, friends and the public.

Seattle Center Student Showcase program at Winterfest:
The health and safety of all participants in our showcase series is our first priority, and in accordance with CDC guidelines and the restrictions in place with regard to indoor gatherings, Seattle Center unfortunately will not be able to produce an in-person Student Showcase program this year.
Instead, we invite you to participate in a Virtual Student Showcase platform. We’ll feature your video content on our website throughout the period that normally would be Winterfest, November 28 to December 31, 2020. We invite you to submit recorded content, no longer than 15 minutes, of your students performing. This video can be from a past performance or new content. We want to encourage you to be creative!

To participate, fill out the online application accesible below, and upload your video to Dropbox.
The application period will open on September 30th at 10am and run through November 16th at 5pm.

Videos should be uploaded to this Dropbox folder.

Fill out this  online form.
