Seniors Got Talent Rules

This annual video contest, brought to you exclusively by Seniors Guide, showcases talented older adults and seniors from across the United States.

Voting: Winning videos are chosen based on the total number of votes cast by February 28th, 2022. Current guidelines allow each voter to vote for their favorite videos once per day, using a valid email address. In addition to our ongoing promotion of Seniors Got Talent, along with word of mouth, past winners have successfully expanded their audience of voters by sharing their videos on Facebook and email – which dramatically increases a video’s chance of winning.

Above all, Seniors Got Talent is about highlighting the vibrancy and fun of being a senior!
