TalentTime
2024

Talent Time continues to evolve as one of the largest diverse multi-cultural competitions in the Washington D.C area. It has come a long way from being a one-day event with under 100 participants and around 15 competitions to now 800+ participants, over 25 competitions across 3 days and as always age is never a barrier to unveil your talent at KAGW's Talent Time - where Time Waits For Talent!


Talent Time helps build confidence and interpersonal skills through collaboration and engagement while fostering a sense of belonging and togetherness within the community. Achievements through the competitions motivate young and adult alike to perform and excel as well as uncover personal aptitude and skills. They offer a lot more reward than just winning a prize!


KAGW's Talent Time continues to be a 100% volunteer driven effort. In addition to providing a unique platform to display one's creative, intellectual and artistic aptitude, it is simply so much fun to be a part of it that we are confident you will look forward to the gala every year!
