Nearly 1,000 youth attended the 68th annual Gathering of the Talents hosted by Concordia on Saturday, April 14. Participating students represented numerous Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod churches, elementary and middle schools throughout the Midwest.

Kindergarten through eighth grade students, their families and teachers traveled from five states to attend the festival, including Nebraska, South Dakota, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri. Students had the chance to show their talents in the categories of art, creative writing, drama, dance and music. Activities were supervised and judged throughout the day by Concordia students, faculty and staff. Ribbons were awarded for outstanding performances.
