Share your talent for CYT Baton Rouge and you could win a virtual Meet & Greet with Film Director of Crazy Rich Asians and In the Heights, Jon M. Chu!
CYT is celebrating 40 years of character building through theater arts and is calling ANYONE of all ages, from across the nation, to share your talent for CYT! CYT is here to stay, but this nationwide fundraising event will offer some much needed support during COVID-19, and benefit ALL CYTs around the country. That means CYT Baton Rouge!

On April 22nd, the countdown to share your talent for CYT begins. Contest submissions must be received by midnight (PT) on the June 18th, to be eligible for judging. When you enter the contest below, you will be directed to the CYT National Website where you can…
  • Create an account
  • Create your contest "Campaign Page" with a video of your talent
  • Choose "CYT Baton Rouge" as the Branch you want to represent
  • Then share, and have people vote (donate) for your talent video!

We're encouraging everyone who enters to ask 10 people to vote (donate) $40 each, toward your campaign. That way, your video will get lots of votes, and CYT Baton Rouge will receive some much needed support, thanks to YOU! On top of that, the CYT Branch that has the most participation (based on percentage) wins a National Trophy! What are you waiting for? Enter the contest now!
