Jackie Evancho on Friday returned to the same stage where she gave her first ever public performance at the Kean Quest Talent Search—the popular local talent competition.
Jackie was a guest judge in the contest and presented the third annual "Jackie Evancho Award," at the Kean Theatre in Richland.
Named for the Pine-Richland native, who shot to fame in 2010 after appearing on “America’s Got Talent,” the award is presented to a contestant who, like Jackie, has competed in Kean Quest for two or more years, works hard, never gives up and continues to follow his or her dreams no matter the outcome, according to Kean Quest. 
Kean Quest wasn’t Jackie’s only big event Friday. Her movie debut in The Company You Keep, starring Robert Redford, opened in theaters Friday.
Jackie, who plays Redford’s daughter in the political thriller, also will celebrate her 13th birthday Tuesday, April 9.
