Public TV preschool show conducting national online talent hunt for 100 animated kids

LatinaLista —  Ever heard of Raggs?

Chances are if you don’t have a preschooler in the house or one you visit on a regular basis, you don’t know but Raggs is a public television musical preschool show “starring five colorful canines that play rockin’ music and live in a cool clubhouse with their pet cat, Dumpster.”
It seems that one of the more popular segments on the show deals with real-live kids. There’s a talk-show format where the kids get interviewed, a la Leno, by Dumpster the cat. The segment is so popular, that like late-night talk shows, the producers are on a nationwide hunt for interesting kids for Dumpster to interview.
Kids who want to appear on the show have to audition. The cool thing about this auditioning process is that it’s totally online.

This is not a talent competition. The goal is to find 100 really animated, talkative and clever kids who represent a diverse sampling of families in our country,” said, Toni Steedman, President and Founder of Raggs LLC.

The contest starts June 1 and runs through June 30. The site provides helpful hints to parents on how to put their kids on film, what the 1-2 minute audition video should have, the rules and all the permission/release forms and questions that need to be answered that go along with the video submission.
Those selected will be notified in July and flown out to North Carolina in August for the show’s taping.
So get that preschooler ready. This could be their big “break.”
