IEA Summer Spotlight 2021 - Institute for Educational Advancement

Join us on July 14, 2021!

Please join us for an exciting Summer Spotlight as we highlight IEA youth from across the nation in a virtual talent show! Students of all ages are invited to showcase their creativity, talent and innovation through short video clips. Acts may include musical performances (instrumental or voice), dancing, skits, poetry readings, original artwork presentations, magic, science experiments, fashion design, cooking or baking, athletic feats or anything else that ignites our students’ passion. Participants may submit their talent as a solo act, or join together for a group submission. We can’t wait to applaud our talented IEA stars!


Parents, grandparents and other family and friends are invited to join in the fun as audience members for the premiere of IEA’s Summer Spotlight Talent Show on Wednesday, July 14 at 5:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time (8:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time.) All participants will receive a small gift.

“Every one of IEA’s programs benefits a student’s mind and soul. From smaller kids in the Academy classes to high school students who are Apprentices, each and every student benefits from solid, structured, fun and stimulating programs with top-tier professionals as teachers and mentors who truly care about them.”

– Elizabeth D. Jones, IEA President

“I have seen so many amazing young people who have achieved so much in their lives with the help of IEA. IEA helped give them the confidence to enjoy life and go through each and every door that opens for them.”
